U.S. Air Force Anthem: Off We Go!

By Robert Crawford Off we go into the wild blue yonder Climbing high into the sun; Here they come zooming to meet our thunder, At’em boys, giv’er the gun! Down we dive spouting our flames from under, Off with one hell-uv-a roar! We live in fame or go down in flame, Nothing’ll stop the US […]

U.S. Coast Guard Anthem: Semper Paratus (Always Ready)

By Captain Francis Saltus Van Boskerck From North and South and East and West, The Coast Guard’s in the fight. Destroying subs and landing troops, The Axis feels our might.

From the Halls of Montezuma To the Shores of Tripoli; We fight our country’s battles In the air, on land and sea; First to fight for right and freedom And to keep our honor clean; We are proud to claim the title of United States Marine. Our flag’s unfurled to every breeze From dawn to […]

Yankee Doodle Dandy

Father and I went down to eamp, Along with Captain Gooding; And there we saw the men and boys, As thick as hasty pudding. Yankee doodle, keep it up, Yankee doodle dandy; Mind the music and the step, And with the girls be handy. There was Captain Washington Upon a slapping stallion, A-giving orders to […]

God Bless the USA

By Lee Greenwood If tomorrow all the things were gone I’d worked for all my life, And I had to start again with just my children and my wife. I’d thank my lucky stars to be living here today, ‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom and they can’t take that away. And I’m proud […]
