REST IN PEACE MY HERO ** Off we go into the wild blue yonder, ** Climbing high into the sun; **Here they come zooming to meet our thunder, **At 'em boys, Give 'er the gun! (Give 'er the gun now!) **Down we dive, spouting our flame from under, **Off with one heckuva roar! ** We live in fame or go down in flame. **Hey! Nothing'll stop the U.S. Air Force! ** **Minds of men fashioned a crate of thunder **Sent it high into the blue **Hands of men blasted the world asunder, **How they lived God only knew! **Souls of men dreaming of skies to conquer **Gave us wings ever to soar, **With scouts before and bombers galore, Hey! **Nothing'll stop the US Air Force! ** **Here's a toast to the host of those **Who love the vastness of the sky, **To a friend we send a message **Of his brother men who fly. **We drink to those who gave their all of old, **Then down we roar **to score the rainbow's pot of gold. **A toast to the host of men we boast, the US Air Force. ** **Zoom! ** **Off we go into the wild sky yonder, **Keep the wings level and true! **If you'd live to be a grey-haired wonder, **Keep your nose out of the blue! (Out of the blue, boy!) **Flying men guarding the nation's border, **We'll be there, followed by more, **In echelon we carry on! Hey! **Nothing'll stop the US Air Force! ** ** additional notes: ** **Notes from the U.S. Air Force site: Words in parentheses are spoken, not sung. Crawford didn't write "Hey!"; he actually wrote "SHOUT!" without specifying the word to be shouted. In addition, the words "U.S. Air Force" have replaced the original "Army Air Corps".
