PRAISE THE LORD AND PASS THE AMMUNITION! (Frank Loesser) The Merry Macs - 1942 Kay Kyser & His Orch. (vocal: The Glee Club) - 1942 Down went the gunner, a bullet was his fate Down went the gunner, then the gunner's mate Up jumped the sky pilot, gave the boys a look And manned the gun himself as he laid aside The Book, shouting... "Praise The Lord, and pass the ammunition Praise The Lord, and pass the ammunition Praise The Lord, and pass the ammunition And we'll all stay free" Praise The Lord, and swing into position Can't afford to sit around a-wishin' Praise The Lord, we're all between perdition And the deep blue sea" Yes, the sky pilot said it You've got to give him credit For a son-of-a-gun of a gunner was he Shouting... "Praise The Lord, we're on a mighty mission All aboard, we're not a-goin' fishin' Praise The Lord, and pass the ammunition And we'll all stay free" ****** As recorded by Kay Kyser & His Orchestra: Praise The Lord, and pass the ammunition Praise The Lord, and pass the ammunition Praise The Lord, and pass the ammunition And we'll all stay free Praise The Lord, and swing into position Can't afford to be a politician Praise The Lord, we're all between perdition And the deep blue sea" Yes, the sky pilot said it You gotta to give him credit For a son-of-a-gun of a gunner was he Shouting... Praise The Lord, we're on a mighty mission All aboard, we ain't a-goin' fishin' Praise The Lord, and pass the ammunition And we'll all stay free" (Orchestral Interlude) Praise The Lord, Praise The Lord and pass the ammunition Praise The Lord, Praise The Lord and pass the ammunition Praise The Lord, Praise The Lord and pass the ammunition And we'll all stay free Praise The Lord, and pass the ammunition Praise The Lord, and pass the ammunition Praise The Lord, and pass the ammunition And we'll all stay free ****** TRIVIA: Chaplain Howell Forgy was a Lieutenant aboard the USS New Orleans during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941. Another lieutenant who had been in charge of an ammunition line on the ship during the the attack said later, "I heard a voice behind me saying, 'Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition'. I turned and saw Chaplain Forgy walking toward me along the line of men. He was patting the men on the back and making that remark to cheer them and keep them going."
