    Traditional
    The Rogue's March

    I left my home and I left my job
    Went and joined the army
    If I knew then what I know now
    I wouldn't have been so barmy.

    Chorus:
    Poor old soldier,
    poor old soldier
    If I knew then what I know now
    I wouldn't have been so barmy.

    Gave me a gun and a big red coat
    Gave me lots of drilling
    If I knew then what I know now
    I wouldn't have took the shilling.

    Chorus:

    Sent me off on a real old boat
    By Christ, she was no beauty
    Far far across the sea we went
    Afore to do my duty

    Chorus:

    Fought the Russians, or was it the French
    Really couldn't tell, sir
    All I know is they fought so hard
    They sent us all to hell, sir.

    Chorus:

    When we got back home again
    To desert was my intent, sir
    I sold my cot and I sold my coat
    And over the wall I went, sir.

    Chorus:

    Went to a tavern and I got drunk
    That is where they found me
    Back to barracks in chains I was sent
    And there they did impound me.

    Chorus:

    Fifty I got for selling me coat
    Fifty for selling me blankets
    If ever I 'list for a soldier again
    The devil shall be me sergeant.

    Chorus:
