Going Down The Road
Lyrics
Going Down The Road

We're going down the road in the morning
We're gonna wait in line with a hundred nore
We're going down the road in the morning
Gonna join our pals going off to war

We're gonna swear an oath in the morning
Gonna swear an oath to our God and King
Gonna swear an oath in the morning
Gonna shout three cheers make the rafters ring

We're gonna get a call in the morning
Sarge is gonna drag us from our lazy beds
We're gonna get a call in the morning
Gonna give us a number, gonna shave our heads

We're going for a run in the morning
With our big boots on and a heavy sack
We're going for a run in the morning
With our rifle high it's gonna break our backs

Three cheers for Lord Kitchener
God save the King and Queen
Let's hear it for the working man
And everyone in between

We're picking up our kit in the morning
Getting on a train, gonna say goodbye
We're picking up our kit in the morning
Gonna leave the girls with a tearful eye

We're going off to France in the morning
Gonna stop the Hun in his evil tracks
We're going off to France in the morning
Gonna finish the job, gonna march right back
