My Gal and Me

                                                       

For all the  sailors who love the sea

Let me tell you a story of my Gal and me  

She had long gray lines, she was the first of her kind

I somehow felt, she was partly mine

She was so alive, back in 65

The word came down, that fateful day

So we set sail, from Subic Bay

Cruising along in the South China Sea

My gal and me, in hull #3

Waiting for the call to serve our nation

We cruised up and down, Yankee Station

On a high speed run, on through the night

My Gal arrived, at dawns early light

She lay off shore, not to make a sound

To support our troops, there on the ground

She fired that day, and into the night

   I looked in awe, at that awesome sight

        As her Star Burst, lit up the night sky 

Her decks were wet, but her powder dry

To do her duty, to do or die

She answered the call of Uncle Sam

After all, we were in Viet Nam

My Gal and me, in the South China Sea

She traveled far, to distant land

From Hong Kong Harbor, to the Sea of Japan

But none could compare, to our promised land

She was always true, to our Red, White, and Blue

My Gal and me, CLG-3
