The end of the Civ-il War was near when quite ac-ci-den-tal-ly
A he-ro who sneezed ab-rupt-ly seized retreat and re-versed it to vic-to-ry
His med-al of hon-or pleased and thrilled his proud lit-tle fam 'ly group
While pin-ning it on some blood was spilled and so it was planned he'd com-mand
F Troop!

Where In-di-an fights are col-or-ful sights and no-bo-dy takes a lickin'
When pale - face and red - skin both turn chick - en
When dril-ling and fight-ing get them down they know their mo-rale can't droop
As long as they all re-lax in town, before they re-sume with a bang and a boom
F Troop!
