Force Shot To Hell

Posted by Jolly on March 29, 2012


This is the Air Force version of the song we posted Monday, also to the Battle Hymn of the Republic.  Keep singing boys and girls!

The Air Force Is Shot To Hell

 Perfromed by the 509th TFS 

My eyes-have seen the days of men who ruled the fighting sky,
With hearts that laughed at death and lived for nothing but to fly,
But now those hearts are grounded and those days are long gone by,
The Air Force has shot to hell


Glory flying regulations

 Have them read at every station

 Crucify the man who breaks one

 The Air Force is shot to hell

My bones have felt their pounding throb a hundred thousand strong,
A mighty airborne Legion set to right the deadly wrong
But it's only memory--it only lives in song
The Air Force is shot to hell


I’ve seen them in their Thunderbolts,

their eyes were dancing flame

I’ve seen their screaming power dives and blasting Goering’s name

But now they fly like sissies

they hang in shame

The Air Force is shot to hell




They flew B-26's through

a living hell of flak,

And bloody dying pilots

gave their lives to bring them back

But now they all play ping pong in the operations shack

The Air Force is shot to hell



The lordly Flying Fortress

and the Liberator too,
Once wrote the doom of Germany

with contrails in the blue,
But now the skies are empty

and our planes are wet with dew
The Air Force is shot to hell.





One day I buzzed an airfield

with another happy chap

 We flew a hot formation

with his wingtip in my Lap

 But now there’s a new directive and we’ll have no more of that

 The Air Force is shot to hell


Hap Arnold built a fighting team that sang a fighting song

About the wild blue yonder in the days when men were strong

But now we’re closely supervised for fear we may do wrong

The Air Force is shot to hell

Glory no more regulations

Rip them down at every station,
Ground the guy who tries to make one, and let us fly like hell….

Best one yet! Made me laugh and cry as nothing seems to have changed.

Mixed emotions. I don't know whether to laugh at the song or cry about the regulation.
