(Original First Verse and Refrain)
By First Lieutenant E.L. Gruber
As our caissons go rolling along.
Up and down, in and out,
Countermarch and right about,
And our caissons go rolling along.
For it's hi-hi-hee
In the Fifth Artillery,
Shout out the number loud and strong.
Till our final ride,
It will always be our pride
To keep those caissons a rolling along.
(Keep them rolling - keep them rolling)
Keep those caissons a rolling along.
