A BROWN SLOUCH HAT by George Wallace 1942

There is a symbol, we love and adore it
You see it daily wherever you go.
Long years have passed since our fathers once wore it,
What is the symbol that we should all know,

It's a brown slouch hat with the side turned up, and it means the world to me,
Its the symbol of our Nation the land of Liberty.
And as soldiers they wear it, how proudly they bear it for all the world to see.
Just a brown slouch hat with the side turned up, heading straight for Victory.

Don't you thrill as young Bill passes by
Don't you beam at the gleam in his eye?
Head erect, shoulders square, tunic spic and span
Ev'ry inch a soldier and ev'ry inch a man.
As they swing down the street, aren't they grand?
Three abreast to the beat of the band.
But what do we remember when the boys have passed along,
Marching by so brave and strong.

It's a brown slouch hat with the side turned up, and it means the world to me,
Its the symbol of our Nation the land of Liberty.
And as soldiers they wear it, how proudly they bear it for all the world to see.
Just a brown slouch hat with the side turned up, heading straight for Victory.
