Johnny, we hardly knew ye.

A stick in me hand and a tear in me eye
A doleful damsel I heard cry,
Johnny I hardly knew ye.

"Johnny, I Hardly Knew Ye" is a popular Irish anti-war song written in early 1800s--and the basis for the title (replacing "I" with "we") of the 1972 Ken O'Donnell-Dave Powers memoir on JFK. O'Donnell and Powers were both aides to and personal friends of Kennedy.
