SMuRf Cadence

 


August 20, 1988


We come from Snow Mountain.
We are trained to save.
We protect the lives of men
Our fathers fought to save.


We come from Snow Mountain.
We are trained to seek.
We search the forest and the mount.
We find the lost and weak.


We come from Snow Mountain.
We are trained to find.
We search through the day and night
With families left behind.

We come from Snow Mountain.
We are trained to live.
Surviving in the wilds,
Our whole lives we give.

We come from Snow Mountain.
We are Rangers all.
Courage, strength, and honor:
Proudly, we stand tall.

We come from Snow Mountain.
We have come to stay.
Training, skill, and effort
Support us all the way.
