Nashville version, ca. 1970:

Glory Glory hallelujah
Teacher hit me with a ruler
I stood behind the door with a loaded .44,
and there ain't no teacher no more

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the burning of the school
Where they tortured all the teachers and they broke all the rules
They broke into the office and they killed the principal
As we go marching on

Glory Glory what's it to ya
Teacher hit me with a ruler
I hit her in the bean with a rotten tangerine
As we go marching on
