From the halls of Montezuma,
To the shores of Tripoli;
We fight our country's battles
In the air, on land, and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title
Of United States Marine.

Our flag's unfurled to every breeze
From the dawn to setting sun;
We have fought in every clime and place
Where we could take a gun;
In the snow of far-off northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes;
You will find us always on the job
The United States Marines.

Here's health to you and to our Corps
Which we are proud to serve;
In many a strife we've fought for life
And have never lost our nerve;
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven's scenes;
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines.

I have a 1932 copy of the sheet music for the "Hymn", and the title is "The Marines' Hymn". The important part is the apostrophe which means that it belongs to us - all Marines.

Throughout the course of written time, When writing instruments had been applied to paper/parchment/writing on (rock)walls. Many a great words have been put together,
The Marine's Hymn is among those great writings!

Always remember it's not a song, it's a hymn. And the toughest
Marines will shead a tear when played. S/F

Use to sing this when I was a youngster back in elementary school along with the Army and Navy's in public school !

Was later forced to sing it while at boot camp as a young man .:evilgrin:

It's funny that as a young man enterring those early years of the later part of my life , I remember those times so long ago and now sing it to myself !

Am glad to have the correct words now ! :sick:

Thanks for this thread , 2568387 USMC ( Carpshooter ) :D

I'll never forget, at ITR in 68, while humping those God forsaken hills. In the dark, pouring down rain, we would sing the Marine Corps Hymn. It kind of made you feel immortal.

I like the "you will find their wifes are sleeping with United States Marines" version better.

I don't remember who said it first but have you noticed our anthem is the only service song that talks about fighting, The Navy plays with anchors, the air farce with the wild blue yonder and the army with their cassions. Only ours is about what we are about---fighting. Love it.

I also have a newspaper copy dated 11/8/1942. It states, The Marine's Hymn and was copyrighted in 1929 by the U.S. Marine Corps.
