U.S. Army - Cadence, sung while marching at Quick Time. Sung with reverance, in a sorrowful tone.

In the early morning rain.
In the early morning rain.
In the early morning rain (extend the last word another four steps.)

I was shot but felt no pain,
M16s and hand grenades!
Squeeze the trigger, pull the pin!
There's a battle we must win (extend the last word another four steps.)

In the early morning rain (x2)

See the trooper on the hill!
He's not afraid to shoot to kill!
See the trooper on the hill! (extend the last word another four steps.)
He's not afraid to shoot to kill,
in the early morning rain.

See the soldier in the sky!
He's not afraid to jump and die.
See the soldier in the sky!
He's not afraid to fight and die.
See the commie dressed in red!
That's my bullet in his head.
The the commie dressed in red.
That's my bullet in his head.
In the early morning rain.

See the terrorist dressed in black!
That's my bayonet in his back.
See the terrorist dressed in black.
That's my bayonet in his back.
In the early morning rain.
In the early morning rain...
In the early morning rain...

When singing this cadence, often you will see soldiers on the side singing along. This candence holds much meaning, and when sung with passion and skill you can feel the energy. I can tell you from experience, early in the morning, marching down a lonely street, it's dark and foggy, and raining...

In the early morning rain, we walk hand in hand through the tree lined streets. Looking more at each other than the puddles lying ahead of our feet. Thinking more of the moment, than of our soaking clothes. Feeling soft hands more than the falling raindrops.

A gentle squeeze of the hand. A stolen kiss. A smile that is bright enough to burn away the clouds.

Love abounds in the early morning rain.
