A Tribute To "The City Of
And the crew that flew her in the
She did the job they made her for
But she isn't with us anymore!
not in Arizona baking in the sun-
She did her job - the war we won!
She gave her all off an alien shore
After bombing Osaka - mission one-four!
mortally wounded by enemy flak,
She tried so hard her crew to save,
And earned herself a watery grave!
were not for her we'd not me able to meet
Once more at this banquet table
To toast our crew who have gone beyond
And renew, in memory, our special
who remain will never allow
Half a century between then and now
To dim the memories of what we did
'Til we all will be crewing her again!
