Ballad Of The Tresher lyrics
Oh, the Thresher, the finest atomic ship that ever dived for the sea.
Each man on board was a volunteer. Was there 'cause he chose there to be.

[Chorus:]
Ev'ry man jack on board was a hero. Ev'ry man jack on board there was brave.
Ev'ry man jack on board was a hero. Each man risked a watery grave.

Oh, their wives and their sweethearts came down to port their last fond good-byes there to say.
Each tried her best to be tearless and brave. They promised to meet there some day.

[Chorus]

Then "Dive," said the Captain and we held our breath. A sound like she'd broken in two.
That was the last we ever heard of her. Last word we had of her crew.

[Chorus]

Oh, the Thresher, yes, now her reactor is still but very good company she keeps.
Men from the Lexington, Hornet, and the Wasp are down there with her in the deep.

[Chorus]
