Statue of The Duke of YorkI recently began a project to write down and transcribe all of my favorite old summer camp songs from my many years spent as a camper and staff member at a Boy Scout summer camp.  The Grand Old Duke of York is one of those favorites and is provided here as free sheet music in PDF format.  The document contains both the lyrics and the actual written sheet music to the song, and can be sung or played on a number of different instruments including trumpet, clarinet, saxophone, or oboe.  Other instruments can play it as well but will have to transpose it into a note range that works for them.  Enjoy!

 

 

 

 

 

Lyrics To The Grand Old Duke of York:

Oh, The grand old Duke of York,
He had ten thousand men;
He marched them up to the top of the hill,
And he marched them down again.

And when they were up, they were up,
And when they were down, they were down,
And when they were only half-way up,
They were neither up nor down.
