"Johnny Doughboy Found a Rose in Ireland"

'Johnny Doughboy Found a Rose in Ireland' is a song composed by Al Goodhart and Kay Twomey for the 1942 film Johnny Doughboy.

'Doughboy' was a slang term for an American soldier, particularly during the First World War. By the Second World War, the term had become largely arcane, replaced by words such as 'G.I.', 'Troop' and 'Dogface'.
