I DON'T KNOW WHERE I'M GOING BUT I'M ON MY WAY
(George Fairman, 1917)
Goodbye everybody I'm off to fight the foe
Uncle Sammy is calling me so I must go
Gee I'm feeling fine don't you wish that you were me?
For I'm sailing tomorrow over the deep blue sea.
Take a look at me I'm a Yankee thro' and thro'
I was born on July the Fourth in ninety two
And I'll march away with a feather in my hat,
For I'm joining the army what do you think of that?
And I don't know where I'm going but I'm on my way
For I belong to the regulars I'm proud to say
And I'll do my duty-uty night or day
I don't know where I'm going but I'm on my way.
