Take Your Gun And Go, John Video:
Lyrics to Take Your Gun And Go, John Don't stop a moment to think John, your country calls then go; Don't think of me or the children John, I'll care for them you know.

Leave the corn upon the stalks John, potatoes on the hill and the pumpkins on the vines John I'll gather them at will.

But take your gun and go John, take your gun and go, for Ruth can drive the oxen John and I can use the hoe.

I've heard my grandsire tell John, (he fought at Bunker Hill) how he counted all his life and wealth his country's offering still.

Shall we shame the brave old blood John, that flowed on Monmouth Plain? No! Take your gun and go John if you ne'er return again.

Then take your gun and go yes take your gun and go, for Ruth can drive the oxen John and I can use the hoe.

Our army's short of blankets John, then take this heavy pair; I spun and wove them when a girl, and worked them with great care.

There's a rose in every corner John , and there's my name you see; on the cold ground they'll warmer feel that they were made by me.

Then take your gun and go John take your gun and go, for Ruth can drive the oxen John and I can use the hoe.

And if it be god's will John you're ne'er come back again, I'll do my best for the children John, in sorrow, want and pain.

In winter nights I'll teach them all that I've learned at school, to love the country, keep the laws and obey the saviours rule.

Then take your gun and go John take your gun and go, for Ruth can drive the oxen John and I can use the hoe.

And in the village church John, and at are humble board we'll pray that God will keep you John and heavenly I'd afford;

And all who love their country's cause will love and bless you too, and nights and mornings they will pray for freedom and for you.

Then take your gun and go John take your gun and go, for Ruth can drive the oxen John and I can use the hoe.

And now goodbye to you John I cannot say farewell; we'll hope and pray for the best John; god's goodness none can tell.

Be his great arm around you John to guard you night and day; Be our beloved country's shield till the war has passed away.

Then take your gun and go John take your gun and go, for Ruth can drive the oxen John and I can use the hoe.

take your gun and go John take your gun and go, for Ruth can drive the oxen John and I can use the hoe.
