The 7th Cavalry Regiment is a United States Army cavalry regiment, whose lineage traces back to the mid-19th century. Its official nickname is "Garryowen", in honour of the Irish drinking song Garryowen that was adopted as its march tune. Lyrics: We are the pride of the army, And a regiment of great renown, Our names on the pages of history, From sixty six on down. If you think we stop or falter, While into the fray were goin' Just watch the step with our heads erect When our band plays "Garry Owen." In the Fighting Sevenths' the place for me. It's the cream of all the cavalry; No other regiment ever can claim Its pride, honor, glory, and undying fame. We know no fear when stern duty Calls us far away from home, Our country's flag shall sagely o'er us wave, No matter where we roam. Tis the gallant Seventh Cavalry, It matters not where we're going such you'll surely say as we march away, When our band plays "Garry Owen." Then hurrah for our brave commanders! Who lead us into the fight. We'll do or die in our country's cause. And battle for the right. And when the war is o'er And to our home we're going Just watch the step, with our head erect, When our band plays, "Garry Owen." Performed by the USAF Heritage of America Band.
