|Single by Larry Verne|
"Mr. Custer" is a march novelty song, sung by Larry Verne, and written by Al DeLory, Fred Darian, and Joseph Van Winkle. It was a number-one song in the United States in 1960, topping the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for the issue dated October 10, 1960, and remained there for one week. It is a comical song about a soldier's plea to Custer before the climactic Battle of the Little Bighorn against the Sioux, which he did not want to fight.
"Mr. Custer" was also a No. 12 hit in the UK for Charlie Drake in 1960.
