Lyrics:Once upon a time there was a little boy who wanted to grow up
And be a soldier and serve his
country in whatever way he could
He would parade around the house with a sauce pan on his
For a helmet, a wooden sword in one hand and the American flag in the other
As he
grew up, he put away the things of a child but he never let go of the flag

My name is
William Calley, I'm a soldier of this land
I've tried to do my duty and to gain the upper
But they've made me out a villain they have stamped me with a brand
As we go
marching on

I'm just another soldier from the shores of U.S.A.
Forgotten on a
battle field then thousand miles away
While life goes on as usual from New York to Santa Fe

As we go marching on

I've seen my buddies ambushed on the left and on the
And their youthful bodies riddled by the bullets of the night
Where all the
rules are broken and the only law is might
As we go marching on

While we're
fighting in the jungles they were marching in the street
While we're dying in the rice fields
they were helping our defeat
While we're facing V.C. bullets they were sounding a retreat

As we go marching on

With our sweat we took the bunkers, with our tears we
took the plain
With our blood we took the mountains and they gave it back again
all of us are soldiers, we're too busy to complain
As we go marching on

When I
reach my final campground in that land beyond the sun
And the great commander asks me, "Did
you fight or did you run?"
I'll stand both straight and tall stripped of medals, rank and gun

And this is what I'll say:

Sir, I followed all my orders and I did the best I
It's hard to judge the enemy and hard to tell the good
Yet there's not a man
among us would not have understood

We took the jungle village exactly like they said

We responded to their rifle fire with everything we had
And when the smoke had cleared
away a hundred souls lay dead

Sir, the soldier that's alive is the only once can
There's no other way to wage a war when the only one in sight
That you're sure
is not a VC is your buddy on your right

When all the wars are over and the battle's
finally won
Count me only as a soldier who never left his gun
With the right to serve
my country as the only prize I've won
As we go marching on
Glory, glory hallelujah
glory, glory hallelujah
