Das Regimentslied der

7th U.S. Cavalry


Der untenstehende Text zum "Garryowen" wurde im Jahre 1905 geschrieben.
Er bezieht sich damit also auch auf die Ereignisse am "Little Big Horn" und stellt daher
auch eine Referenz an alle die dar, die in den Reihen der 7th in vielen Schlachten und Geplänkeln
bis zu diesem Zeitpunkt ihr Leben ließen.

[Verse 1]
We are the pride of the Army
and a regiment of great renown,
Our Name's on the pages of History.
From sixty-six on down.
If you think we stop or falter
While into the fray we're going
Just watch the steps with our heads erect,
While our band plays GarryOwen. (Chorus)

In the Fighting Seventh's the place for me,
Its the cream of all the Cavalry;
No other regiment ever can claim
Its pride, honor, glory and undying fame.

[Verse 2]
We know fear when stern duty
Calls us far away from home,
Our country's flag shall safely o'er us wave,
No matter where we roam.
"Tis the gallant 7th Cavalry
It matters not where we are going"
Such you'll surely say as we march away;
And our band plays GarryOwen. (Chorus)

[Verse 3]
Then hurrah for our brave commanders!
Who led us into the fight.
We'll do or die in our country's cause,
And battle for the right.
And when the war is o'er,
And to our home we're goin
Just watch your step, with our heads erect,
When our band plays GarryOwen. (Chorus)

Reference: "From Custer to MacArthur, the 7th US Cavalry"
