Over hill, over dale,
As we hit the dusty trail,
And the caissons go rolling along.

Counter march, right about,
Hear those wagon soldiers shout,
While the caissons go rolling along.

Chorus:
Then it's hi! hi! hee!
In the field artillery,
Call out your numbers loud and strong,
For where e'er you go,
You will always know,
That those caissons go rolling along.
That those caissons go rolling along.

Over hill, over dale,
As we hit the dusty trail,
And the caissons go rolling along.

Counter march, right about,
Hear those wagon soldiers shout,
While the caissons go rolling along.
