Quite Possibly the most perfect running cadence
C130 is one of those running cadences that has been adapted by all services and all units. While it was tough to decide which service this belonged to I decided to add it to the Army Category since the C-130 is a an Army Aircraft (Although the Coast Guard and Air Force have a few) and the Airborn is an Army unit.
If you would like to add additional stanzas of “C-130 rolling down the strip” Please drop it in the comments and I’d love to add your lines.
C-130 Rolling down the Strip (Classic Running Cadence)
C130 rollin down the strip
Airborn ranger Gonna take a little trip
Jump right out and count to four
And if my chute don’t open wide
I have another one by my side
And if that chute don’t open round
I’ll be the first one on the ground.
If I die on the combat zone
Box me up and ship me home.
Other Endings to the C-130 Cadence
If I die in the Spanish Moors / Bury me deep with a case of Coors
If I die in a firefight / Bury me deep with a case of Lite
If I die in a German Blitz / Bury me deep with a case of Schlitz
If I die don’t bring me back / Bury me with a case of Jack
If I die in the Korean mud / Bury me with a case of Bud
Bury speakers all around my head / So I can rock with the Grateful Dead
Bury speakers all around my toes / So I can rock with Axel Rose
