I remember when I was a barefooted boy climbing in a sycamore
tree.

Got a pretty gal waitin' for me while I rot here in the Army.
Some fool made a soldier of me.

I told her we'd marry and build us a home and raise us a big
family.
But she's givin' all her charms to a blue uniform. Some fool
made a soldier of me.

Some fool made a soldier of me, ah ha! And I ride in the rough
calva'ry.
The day's getting' hotter. I'm near out of water. Some fool made
a soldier of me.

a-getting' to me.
But he said, "Have no fear. There's a big river near."
Some fool made a soldier of me.

Some fool made a soldier of me, ah ha! And I ride in the rough
calva'ry.

Hey, Gen'ral Custer. I think I see an Indian over there. Yeah!
Ask her if she's got a friend for me!
Some fool made a soldier of me.
