SOLDIER SONG (6), by                    
First Line: "there's a long, long trace awinding"
Last Line: "she's goin' to rock, by heck"
Subject(s): Army Life; Drills & Minor Tactics

There's a long, long trace awinding
Around the hocks of my team
The martingale is missing
And the left brake beam.
I've got the collar round his quarters
Got the crupper round his neck
And it all looks damn peculiar but
She's goin' to roll, by heck!
