Messages for the Family

  1. Bobby Harris says:
    Anchors Aweigh (1906 version)
    Stand Navy out to sea, Fight our Battle Cry;
    We’ll never change our course, So vicious foe steer shy-y-y-y.
    Roll out the TNT, Anchors Aweigh. Sail on to Victory
    And sink their bones to Davy Jones, Hooray!

    Anchors Away, my boys, Anchors Aweigh.
    Farewell to foreign shores, We sail at break of day-ay-ay-ay.
    Through our last night on shore, Drink to the foam,
    Until we meet once more. Here’s wishing you a happy voyage home.

    Blue of the Mighty Deep; Gold of God’s Sun
    Let these colors be till all of time be done, done, done,
    On seven seas we learn Navy’s stern call:
    Faith, Courage, Service true, with Honor, Over Honor, Over All.
