A Bicycle Built for Two - Daisy Bell

Wiki article on the Caisson Song


Over hill, over dale,

As we hit the dusty trail,
              G7                          C
And the caissons go rolling a-long.
In and out, hear them shout,

Counter march and right about,
              G7                          C
And the caissons go rolling a-long.

Then it's hi! hi! hee!
           F                  G7
In the field ar-til-ler-y,
                         D7                        G7
Shout out your numbers loud and strong,
                  C         E7
For where e'er you go,
F                    C
You will always know,
               G7                       C 
That the caissons go rolling along. (Keep them rolling!)
                 G7                         C 
Yes those caissons go rolling along!
