Anchors Aweigh - Navy Song

US Naval Song 1906

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.    

The author of this website has put a lot of time and effort into gathering the greatest collection of sea shanties for the world to enjoy - There are songs that have been to sung to a job of work at sea for many, many years and collecting them has been a great endeavour. - Roger Chartier has made the effort out of his own interest and the requests that he has gotten to do this work from fellow musicians who wanted a good source of sea shanties to draw on and learn from. He has been told that for this effort he is a remarkable man.
