Army Hymn
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
Then it's Hi! Hi! Hey!
The Army's on its way.
Count off the cadence loud and strong
(TWO THREE)
For where'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
Minutemen, from the start,
Always fighting from the heart,
And the Army keeps rolling along.
Men in rags, men who froze,
Still that Army met its foes,
And the Army went rolling along.
