"Garryowen" is an old Irish quick-step that can be traced back to the early 1860's. In 1867, "Garryowen" was adopted by the 7th Cavalry Regiment as the official Air (tune) of the Regiment, and the historical nickname given to the 7th Cavalry Regiment and Troopers. It became the Official tune of the 1st Cavalry Division in 1981. "Garryowen" has become undoubtedly the most famous of all the regimental marches in the Army.

The word garryowen is derived from Irish, the proper name Eóghan ("born of the yew tree") and the word for garden garrai - thus "Eóghan's Garden". The term refers to an area of the town of Limerick, Ireland.

"Garryowen" is known to have been used by Irish regiments as a drinking song. As the story goes, one of the Irish "melting pot" Troopers of the 7th Cavalry, under the influence of "spirits", was singing the song. By chance Custer heard the melody, liked the cadence, and soon began to hum the tune to himself. The tune has a lively beat, that accentuates the cadence of marching horses, and for that reason was adopted as the regimental song soon after Custer arrived at Fort Riley, Kansas to take over command of the 7th Cavalry Regiment. It was the last song played for Custer's men as they left General Terry's column at the Powder River and rode into history.

I created this arrangement for Woodwinf Trio (Flute, Oboe & Bassoon) at the request of my friend Rick.

LYRICS
We can dare or we can do
United men and brothers too
Their gallant footsteps to pursue
And change our country's story.

Our hearts so stout have got us fame
For soon tis' known from whence we came
Where'er we go they dread the name
Of Garry Owen in glory.

Our hearts so stout have got us fame
For soon tis' known from whence we came
Where'er we go they dread the name
Of Garry Owen in glory.

And when the mighty day comes round
We still shall hear their voices sound
Our clans shall roar along the ground
For Garry Owen in glory.

To emulate their high renown
To strike our false oppressor down
And stir the old triumphant sound
with Garry Owen in glory.

To emulate their high renown
To strike our false oppressor down
And stir the old triumphant sound
with Garry Owen in glory.
