Doughboy Ballads free pdf Excerpt from Doughboy Ballads "We've Done Our Hitch in Hell" I am sitting here a-thinking of the things I left behind, And I hate to put on paper what is running through my mind.We've dug a million trenches and chased ten miles of ground, And meaner place this side of hell I know is still unfound, But there's one great consolation, gather close while I tell, When we die well go to Heaven, for we've done our hitch in Hell. We've built a hundred kitchens for the cook to bake our beans, We've stood a hundred guard mounts and cleaned up the camp latrines-We've washed a million mess kits and peeled a million spuds, We've rolled a million blanket rolls and washed a million duds.The number of parades we've made would be very hard to tell, But we'll not parade in Heaven, for we've done our hitch in Hell. We've killed a million German snakes that tried to take our cots-We've shaken scores of centipedes from out our army socks-We've marched a hundred thousand miles and made a thousand camps, And pulled a million cactus thorns from out our army pants-But when our work on earth is done, our friends will surely tell, "When they die they go to Heaven, for they've done their hitch in Hell." The final taps are sounding and we lay aside life's cares, And we do our last parading up the shining golden stairs, And the angels bid us welcome and the harps begin to play, And we draw a million canteen checks and spend them in a day.'Tis then we'll hear St. Peter tell us loudly with a yell: "Take a front seat. Engineer, for you've done your hitch in Hell." Just Thinking Standing up here on the fire stepA-looking ahead in the mist, With a tin hat over your ivoryAnd a rifle clenched in your fist-Waiting, watching, wondering, If the Huns are coming over tonight.Say!
