The Rough Riders

The Charge of The 1,250

1,250 rode up the hill

The roughest and toughest we could find

Never stopping to think for their own hide

Some for the last time


Like a bull they charged

In deadly clusters

Easy targets they made a blunder

And down they went Spanish guns clapping like thunder


The best equipment of the time

Procured by good ole Teddy

It was so he could call the regiment mine

Good ole Roosevelt the best of his time


On that day heroes were made

Standing atop the blood soaked hill

The day that history was made

The 1,250 rode up the hill
