A Cheer For Tommie Ricketts

There's a son from Terra Nova, Sergeant Ricketts is his name
From a settlement in White Bay to the Regiment he came
And now he stands forever on the Empire's roll of fame
And he goes marching on.......
Glory, Glory, etc.

He has won the highest honour that heroic deeds can bring
The V.C. pinned upon his breast by our most gracious King
the D.C.M., and Croix de Guerre, so make the welkin ring
As he goes marching on.......
Glory, Glory, etc.

The Allies fought for Justice and the Victory is won
We are proud of all who helped to smash the Armies of the Hun
But we take a special pride in Terra Nova's gallant son
And he goes marching on.......
Glory, Glory, etc.

Having nobly done his duty he is home with us once more
A quiet, modest soldier but a hero to the core
For him may future years have every happiness in store
And he goes marching on.......
Glory, Glory, etc.

The wheels of time roll swiftly and the days of peace are near
Our duty is not ended with a handshake and a cheer
We must give our boys a living, not in other lands but here
And he goes marching on.......
Glory, Glory, etc.
