    Gary Owen

    Chorus: Gary Owen, Gary Owen, Gary Owen
    In the valley of Montana all alone
    There are better days to be
    In the seventh cavalry
    When we charge again For dear old Gary Owen.

    I can hear those Sioux bucks singing, Sgt.
    I can hear those tom-toms ringing, Sgt. Flynn
    I can hear those Sioux bucks singing,
    I can here those tom-toms ringing,
    But they don't yet know the tune to Gary Owen.

    It's first call I hear it sounding, Sgt. Flynn
    And it sounds like taps a-rounding, Sgt. Flynn
    Oh me lads, here's something fancy
    Take a break, it's Private Clancy
    And you'll feel better when he strikes up Gary Owen

    For it's Boots and Saddles sounding, Sgt. Flynn
    Along the line the men are bounding, Sgt. Flynn
    So let' saddle-up and fall in
    For the trumpets are callin'
    And the band is tuning up for Gary Owen.

    For it's forward we're advancing, Sgt. Flynn
    And the breeze guides are a-lancing, Sgt. Flynn
    Walk, trot, gallop, charge by thunder,
    We will ride those cut throats under.
    Drive your sabers to the hilt for Gary Owen.

    We are ambushed and surrounded, Sgt. Flynn
    Yet recall has not been sounded, Sgt. Flynn
    Gather round me and we'll rally
    Make one last stand in the valley
    For the Seventh Regiment and Gary Owen.

    You are cut, and scalped, and battered, Sgt. Flynn
    All your men are dead and scattered, Sgt. Flynn
    I will make your bed tomorrow
    With my head bowed down in sorrow.
    O'er your grave, I'll whistle Taps And Gary Owen.

    Leader sings lines of verses, group yells back "Sgt. Flynn"
    and "Gary Owen" at the end of each of those lines.
