Seventh Cavalry Regimental Coat of Arms

song sheet
Garry Owen, regimental battle song of the Seventh United States Cavalry.


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 goin',
Just watch the step, with our heads erect
When our band plays "Garry Owen."

(Second strain of Garry Owen)

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



We know no 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 Seventh Cavalry.
It matters not where we're goin'.
Such you'll surely say, as we march away,
And our band plays "Garry Owen."


Then hurrah for our brave commanders!
Who lead 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 homes we're goin'.
Just watch the step, with our heads erect,
When the band plays "Garry Owen."
