When "As The Caissons Go Rolling Along" was promoted to be the official US
Army song, the Field Artillery got a replacement song, which runs:

     Count off, you cannoncockers,
     You redleg cannoneers.
     You've been the king of battle
     for the past two hundred years.

     The grunts and the tankers
     need us to open the way.
     So fire your gun
     Till the battle's done
     With the field artillery.

                      - James A. Landau
