The end of the Civil War was near When quite accidentally, A hero who sneezed abruptly seized Retreat and reversed it to victory.
His medal of honor pleased and thrilled his proud little family group. While pinning it on some blood was spilled And so it was planned he'd command F Troop.
Where Indian fights are colorful sights and nobody takes a lickin' Where pale face and redskin Both turn chicken.
When drilling and fighting get them down, They know their morale can't droop. As long as they all relax in town Before they resume with a bang and a boom F Troop.
