    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
