From the [D]Halls of Monte[A]zu [D]ma,
to the [A]shores of [A7]Tripo[D]li
We fight our country's [A]batt[D]les,

Our flag's unfurled to [A]every [D]breeze,
from [A]dawn to [A7]setting [D]sun
We have fought in ev’ry [A]clime and [D]place,
where [A]we could [A7]take a [D]gun
In the [G]snow of far-off [D]Northern lands,
and in [G]sunny tropic [D]scenes
You will find us always [A]on the [D]job,
The [A]United [A7]States Ma[D]rines.
Here's health to you and [A]to our [D]Corps,

If the [G]Army and the [D]Navy,
ever [G]look on Heaven’s [D]scenes
They will find the [A]streets are [D]guarded,
by [A]United [A7]States Ma[D]rines.
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 dawn to setting sun
We have fought in ev’ry 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 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.
