Music by Jacques Offenbach Traditional Lyrics VERSE 1 C From the Halls of Montezuma G7 C To the shores of Tripoli; We fight our country's battles G7 C In the air, on land, and sea; F C First to fight for right and freedom F C G7 And to keep our honor clean; C We are proud to claim the title G7 C Of United States Marine. VERSE 2 C Our flag's unfurled to every breeze G7 C From dawn to setting sun; We have fought in every clime and place G7 C Where we could take a gun; F C In the snow of far-off northern lands F C G7 And in sunny tropic scenes; C You will find us always on the job G7 C The United States Marines. VERSE 3 C Here's health to you and to our Corps G7 C Which we are proud to serve; In many a strife we've fought for life G7 C And never lost our nerve; F C If the Army and the Navy F C G7 Ever look on heaven's scenes; C They will find the streets are guarded G7 C By United States Marines.
