FIDDLERS GREEN

HALFWAY DOWN THE TRAIL TO HELL

IN A SHADY MEADOW GREEN

ARE THE SOULS OF ALL DEAD TROOPERS CAMPED 

NEAR A GOOD OLE-TIME CANTEEN,

AND THIS ETERNAL RESTING PLACE IS

KNOW AS FIDDLERS' GREEN

 MARCHING PAST STRAIGHT THROUGH TO HELL

THE INFANTRY ARE SEEN

ACCOMPANIED BY THE ENGINEERS,

ARTILLERY AND MARINES,

FOR NONE BUT THE SHADES OF CAVALRYMEN

DISMOUNT AT FIDDLERS' GREEN

 THOUGH SOME GO CURVING DOWN THE TRAIL

TO SEEK A WARMER SCENE,

NO TROOPER EVER GETS TO HELL

ERE HE'S EMPTIED HIS CANTEEN.

AND SO RIDES BACK TO DRINK AGAIN

WITH FRIENDS AT FIDDLERS' GREEN

 AND SO WHEN MAN AND HORSE GO DOWN

BENEATH A SABRE KEEN,

OR ON ROARING CHARGE OF FIERCE MELEE

YOU STOP A BULLET CLEAN.

AND THE HOSTILES COME TO GET YOUR SCALP

JUST EMPTY YOUR CANTEEN,

AND PUT YOUR PISTOL TO YOUR HEAD

AND GO TO FIDDLERS' GREEN.
