Have you heard the many a story
Told by old and young with joy
'Bout the many deeds of daring
That was done by the Johnson boys
That was done by the Johnson boys
That was done by the Johnson boys
That was done by the Johnson boys

The Johnson boys were boys of honor
They knew how the fortune made
They knew how to hug and kiss them
Oh but pretty girls don't be afraid
Oh but pretty girls don't be afraid
Oh but pretty girls don't be afraid
Oh but pretty girls don't be afraid

They were lads of skill and courage
And their sights were very far
And they joined the country service
In that awful civil war, in that awful civil war
In that awful civil war, in that awful civil war

They were scouts in Rebels army
And were known far and wide
When the Yankees saw them comin'
They throw down their guns and hide
They throw down their guns and hide
They throw down their guns and hide
They throw down their guns and hide
