BIG RED ONE, THE
Lyrics and music: Capt. (later Col.) Donald T. Kellett, US Army
Alan Gresik Swing Shift Orchestra, others.
Toast of the Army, favorite son!
Hail to the Big Red One!
Always the first to thirst for a fight -
No foe shall challenge our right to vict'ry.
We take the field, a grand sight to see,
Pride of the Infantry.
Men of a great division,
Courage our tradition,
Forward the Big Red One!
