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
For where e’er we go,
You will always know
That The Army Goes Rolling Along.

Verse:

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.
(Refrain)

Verse:

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.
(Refrain)

Over hill, over dale
We have hit the dusty trail
And those Caissons go rolling along
("Counter March! Right About!")
Hear those wagon soldiers shout
While those Caissons go rolling along

For it's 'hi', 'hi', 'hee' in the field artillery
Call off your numbers loud and strong (2!, 3!)
And where-e'er we go, you will always know
That those Caissons go rolling along

To the front, day and night
Where the doughboys dig and fight
And those Caissons go rolling along
Our barrage will be there
Fired on the rocket's glare
While those Caissons go rolling along

For it's 'hi', 'hi', 'hee' in the field artillery
Call off your numbers loud and strong (2!, 3!)
And where-e'er we go, you will always know
That those Caissons go rolling along

With the cavl'ry boot to boot
We will join in the pursuit
And those Caissons go rolling along
Action front (at a trot!)
Volley fire with shell and shot
While those Caissons go rolling along

For it's 'hi', 'hi', 'hee' in the field artillery
Call off your numbers loud and strong (2!, 3!)
And where-e'er we go, you will always know
That those Caissons go rolling along

Should the foe penetrate
Ev'ry gunner lies in wait
And those Caissons go rolling along
(Fire at will! Lay 'em low!)
Never stop for any foe
While those Caissons go rolling along

For it's 'hi', 'hi', 'hee' in the field artillery
Call off your numbers loud and strong (2!, 3!)
And where-e'er we go, you will always know
That those Caissons go rolling along

But if fate me should call
And in action I should fall
Keep those Caissons go rolling along
Then in peace I'll abide
When I take my final ride
On a Caisson that's rolling along

For it's 'hi', 'hi', 'hee' in the field artillery
Call off your numbers loud and strong (2!, 3!)
And where-e'er we go, you will always know
That those Caissons go rolling along
(Keep 'em rolling)
That those Caissons are rolling along
(Batt'ry Hlt!)
