4th Infantry Division in the DesertTHE CUSTER LEGACY

General George A. Custer and General George S. Patton are the only generals cited in the official US army song (1956).


Intro:

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

Verse:

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.

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.
* "Two! Three!" is typically sung here but is not an official part of the song

Verse:

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)

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)
