"The Army Goes Rolling Along"
All the words to "The Army Goes Rolling Along:" (Based upon "The Caisson Song" by Brig. Gen. E.L. Gruber) Written and adapted by H.W. Arberg


March along, sing our song
with the Army of the free
Count the brave,
count the true,
who have fought to victory.
We're the Army and proud of our name;
We're the Army and proudly proclaim:

First to fight for the right, and to build the Nation's might,
And the Army Goes Rolling Along
Proud of all we have done,
Fighting till the battle's won,
And the Army Goes Rolling Along

CHORUS
Then it's hi, hi, hey! The Army's on its way
Count off the cadence loud and strong (two, three)
For wher-e'er we go, You will always know
that the Army Goes Rolling Along

Valley Forge, Custer's ranks, San Juan hill and Patton's tanks,
And the Army went rolling along.
Minute men from the start,
Always fighting from the heart,
And the Army keeps rolling along.

CHORUS
Men in rags, men who froze, still that Army met its foes,
And the Army went rolling along.
Faith in God, then we're right,
And we'll fight with all our might,
As the Army keeps rolling along.

CHORUS (the third chorus should be sung slower) + (Keep it rolling) And The Army Goes Rolling Along.
