Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Airborne Ranger Song (US Army 82nd)
Oh how I remember double-timing to this song during Basic Training early morning runs! Man, I miss those days...then maybe not!

The verses we sang were risque. You could not sing those now in today's "VOLAR" Army. Back then it was referred to "This Man's Army" My, how things have changed.

One of my favorite slow march cadence songs we sang was: AAAmen, AAAmen, AAmen, Amen, Amen....Listen soldier, AAAmen.. This was a variation of the Impressions song from the mid 1960s.

Then of course there was: your lady was home when you left, your right!...Sound off 1..2 Sound off 3..4 Sound off 1234...

Ah, those were the days! (or maybe not)
