Oh the infantree the infantree
  With the dirt behind their ears

    ARMIES CLASH AT VERDUN IN GLOBE'S GREATEST BATTLE
      150,000 MEN AND WOMEN IN PARADE
        but another question and a very important one is raised.
      - 1919, (2nd part of U.S.A. trilogy)
        [Books (First Lines)]

It was that emancipated race
  That was chargin up the hill
    Up to where them insurrectos
      Was afightin fit to kill

        CAPITAL CITY'S CENTURY CLOSED
          General Miles with his gaudy uniform and spirited charger was the center for all eyes especially as his steed was extremely restless.
      - The 42nd Parallel (Newsreel I),
        (1st part of U.S.A. trilogy)
        [Books (First Lines)]

Charley Anderson lay in his bunk in a glary red buzz.
      - The Big Money,
        (3rd part of U.S.A. trilogy)
        [Books (First Lines)]

The young man walks fast by himself through the crowd that thins into the night streets; feet are tired from hours of walking; eyes greedy for warm curve of faces, answering flicker of eyes, the set of a head, the lift of a shoulder, the way hands spread and clench; blood tingles with wants; mind is a beehive of hopes buzzing and stinging; muscles ache for the knowledge of jobs, for the roadmender's pick and shovel work, the fisherman's knack with a hook when he hauls on the slithery net from the rail of the lurching trawler, the swing of a bridgeman's arm as he slings down the whitehot rivet, the engineer's slow grip wise on the throttle, the dirtfarmer's use of his whole body when, whoaing the mules, he yanks the plow from the furrow. The young man walks by himself searching through the crowd with greedy eyes, greedy ears taut to hear, by himself, alone.
      - U.S.A., (a trilogy) [Books (First Lines)]
