SHIP'S ROSTER

                                                           

OLD SAILORS
(Author unknown)

OLD SAILORS SIT AND CHEW THE FAT
ABOUT THINGS THAT USED TO BE,
 OF THE THINGS THEY'VE SEEN
THE PLACES THEY'VE BEEN,
WHEN THEY VENTURED OUT TO SEA.

THEY REMEMBERED FRIENDS FROM LONG AGO,
THE TIMES THEY HAD BACK THEN,
THE MONEY THEY SPENT,
THE BEER THEY DRANK,
IN THEIR DAY AS SAILING MEN.

THEIR LIVES ARE LIVED IN DAYS GONE BY,
WITH THOUGHTS THAT FOREVER LAST,
OF BELL BOTTOM BLUES,
WINGED WHITE HATS,
AND GOOD TIMES IN THEIR PAST.

THEY RECALL LONG NIGHTS WITH A MOON SO BRIGHT,
FAR OUT ON A LONELY SEA,
THE THOUGHTS THEY HAD
AS  YOUTHFUL LADS,
WHEN THEIR LIVES WERE WILD AND FREE.

THEY KNEW SO WELL HOW THEIR HEARTS WOULD SWELL
WHEN OLD GLORY FLUTTERED PROUD AND FREE,
THE UNDERWAY PENNANT
SUCH A BEAUTIFUL SIGHT
AS THEY PLOWED THROUGH AN ANGRY SEA.

THEY TALKED OF THE CHOW OL' COOKIE WOULD MAKE,
AND THE SHRILL OF THE BOSUN'S PIPE,
HOW SALT SPRAY WOULD FALL
LIKE SPARKS FROM HELL,
WHEN A STORM STRUCK IN THE NIGHT.

THEY REMEMBER OLD SHIPMATES ALREADY GONE,
WHO FOREVER HOLD A SPOT IN THEIR HEART.
WHEN SAILORS WERE BOLD,
AND FRIENDSHIPS WOULD HOLD,
UNTIL DEATH RIPPED THEM APART.

THEIR SAILING DAYS ARE GONE AWAY
NEVER AGAIN WILL THEY CROSS THE BROW,
THEY HAVE NO REGRETS,
THEY KNOW THEY ARE BLESSED,
FOR HONORING A SACRED VOW.

THEIR NUMBERS GROW LESS WITH EACH PASSING DAY
AS THE FINAL MUSTER BEGINS,
THERE'S NOTHING TO LOSE
ALL HAVE PAID THEIR DUES
AND THEY'LL SAIL WITH SHIPMATES AGAIN.

I'VE HEARD THEM SAY BEFORE GETTING UNDERWAY
THAT THERE'S STILL SOME SAILING TO DO
THEY'LL SAY WITH A GRIN
THAT THEIR SHIP HAS COME INí
AND THE LORD IS COMMANDING THE CREW.

mRECALLED TO DUTY ~ THE ETERNAL VOYAGE
(Author Unknown)

Bon Voyage to those who've set sail
We bid them farewell as we man the rail.
Let us be Joyous and let us not weep
For those who have now crossed over the deep.
When a Sailor's last roll call is made
His final embarking sha'nt be delayed.
So lower the Colors, let them be furled
Each time a Sailor disembarks this world.
The crew onboard in Heaven awaits
The Eternal reunion of their mates.
They'll be welcomed home by those onboard
Moored
in peaceful waters with the Lord.
As he approaches, he'll call "Ahoy! The ship!"
Now in safe harbor, an Eternal trip.
Then he'll hear "Sailor on deck!  Hoist the flag!,"
"Help him get settled!  Help stow his bag!,"
Be it known that it's a Divine remand
To ship in Heaven, ye Seafaring Man.
On permanent station forevermore
Peaceful duty for Veterans of war.
And when he's weighed anchor for the last time
We'll Honor his memory so sublime.
We'll all reminisce and hoist a brew
In a toast of Honor to the crew.
