THE CAISSONS GO ROLLING ALONG (Major Edmund L. Gruber) (1907) Recorded by: Band of the Grenadier Guards; Bob Crosby & His Orch.; Andr Kostelanetz; Gene Krupa & His Orch.; Regimental Band of the Coldstream Guards; Washington Men's Camerata. Over hill, over dale As we hit the dusty trail, And the Caissons go rolling along. In and out, hear them shout, Counter march and right about, And the Caissons go rolling along. Then it's hi! hi! hee! In the field artillery, Shout out your numbers loud and strong, For where e'er you go, You will always know That the Caissons go rolling along. In the storm, in the night, Action left or action right See those Caissons go rolling along Limber front, limber rear, Prepare to mount your cannoneer And those Caissons go rolling along. Then it's hi! hi! hee! In the field artillery, Shout out your numbers loud and strong, For where e'er you go, You will always know That the Caissons go rolling along. Was it high, was it low, Where the hell did that one go? As those Caissons go rolling along Was it left, was it right, Now we won't get home tonight And those Caissons go rolling along. Then it's hi! hi! hee! In the field artillery, Shout out your numbers loud and strong, For where e'er you go, You will always know That the Caissons go rolling along. That the Caissons go rolling along. That the Caissons go rolling along. ***** ALTERNATIVE VERSION (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 done, And the Army Goes Rolling Along. Refrain: 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. 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. Refrain: 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: *****
