Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition

Down went the gunner, a bullet was his fate
Down went the gunner, then the gunners mate
Up jumped the sky pilot, gave the boys a look
And manned the gun himself as he laid aside The Book, shouting
Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition!
Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition!
Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition and we'll all stay free!

Praise the Lord and swing into position!
Can't afford to sit around and wishin'
Praise the Lord we're all between perdition
and the deep blue sea!

Yes the sky pilot said it
You've got to give him credit
for a son - of - gun - of - a - gunner was he,
Shouting;
Praise the Lord we're on a mighty mission!
All aboard, we're not a - goin' fishin;
Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition and we'll all stay free!


I found this song while I was searching for some more information about a quote by Chaplain Forgy:
Quote:
"Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition."
- H. M. Forgy, chaplain USS New Orleans, Pearl Harbor, Dec 7, 1941

Sounds like a Padre whose sermon you wouldn't want to fall asleep in.



No boom, no boom, no boom, Amen.
