The Marine's Hymn

Performed by Kate Smith
Recorded February 12, 1942

From the Halls of Montezuma
To the shores of Tripoli
We fight our country's battles
On land and and sea;
Aspiration of the nation
We're the finest ever seen
And we glory in the title
Of United States Marine.

Our flag's unfurled to every breeze
From dawn to setting sun;
We have fought in every clime and place
Where we could take a gun.
In the snow of far-off Northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes;
You will always find us on the job --
The United States Marines.
