by George D. Lottman
[Verse 1]
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!

[Verse 2]
Anchors Aweigh, my boys, Anchors Aweigh.
Farewell to college joys, 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.

           FINAL PATROL


I have one consolation that lives with me today.

That God is near to them, in his own special way.

So God in all Your mercy, keep near Thyself the soul,

Of every Submariner, still on his final patrol.


Lord, this departed shipmate with dolphins on his chest

is part of an outfit known as the best.

Make him welcome and take him by the hand.

You'll find without a doubt he was the best in all the land.



So, heavenly Father add his name to the roll

of our departed shipmates still on patrol.

Let them know that we who survive

will always keep their memories alive.
