Horo Johnny

from Laurels by Sophie Janna

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Since the first edition of this album has almost sold out, I made a new set. The old sleeve was no longer available and I changed my last name since the previous version, so this is a revised edition. The front is hand-stamped with a lino-cut made by Anneke ter Schure, everything else is handwritten onto the sleeve by me. That means that on these sleeves you can actually read the title of each song! :)

    Includes unlimited streaming of Laurels via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
    ships out within 2 days
    edition of 50 

      €12.40 EUR or more 

     

lyrics

Horo Johnny won't you come home soon
The winter's coming and I'm all alone
A candle's burning in my window love
And the wild geese they are flying home

A young man's love is something to behold
First it burns and then it soon turns cold
He'll whisper in the moonlight and your hand he'll hold
Then he'll vanish with the morning dew

Horo Johnny won't you come home soon
The winter's coming and I'm all alone
A candle's burning in my window love
And the wild geese they are flying home

He'll court you in a meadow in the summer time
When first you love it's the sweetest time
He'll promise you a golden ring and then one day
He'll vanish with the morning with the dew

Horo Johnny won't you come home soon
The winter's coming and I'm all alone
A candle's burning in my window love
And the wild geese they are flying home

You'll be waiting for his footsteps in the lonely room
Listen by the window he'll be coming soon
Your heart it will be breaking by the early dawn
For he'll vanish with the morning dew

Horo Johnny won't you come home soon
The winter's coming and I'm all alone
A candle's burning in my window love
And the wild geese they are flying home
And the wild geese they are flying home
