I am looking for the lyrics to the song,

"Lets Remember Pearl Harbor" and "Go On To Victory" that were released after World War II.

The lyrics for "Remember Pearl Harbor" are as follows:

History - in every century, records an act that lives forevermore;

We'll recall - as in to line we fall the thing that happened on Hawaii's shore.  

Let's REMEMBER PEARL HARBOR - As we go to meet the foe -

Let's REMEMBER PEARL HARBOR -  As we did the Alamo.

We will always remember - how they died for liberty

Let's REMEMBER PEARL HARBOR and go on to victory.

Hope this is what you were looking for.

Regards!

Are there any other songs or poems that were sung or written about Pearl Harbor?  I have been to Pearl Harbor two times now.  It always touches me when I see the list of the men who died on the USS Arizona.

I would appreciate anything on the USS Arizona and any songs and poems on Pearl Harbor.  I am planning on writing a romance story on Pearl Harbor.  If you have any ideas or any information I would greatly appreciate it.

May the men rest in peace and let God watch over them and bless their families.

in addition to "Lets Remember Pearl Harbor" the song "Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition" was "susposely" based on an incident that was reported to have taken place during the Japanese attack.  I believe a navy Chaplain was suppose to have uttered the phase when helping to pass ammunition to one of the antiaircraft guns.  

Anyway it is quite an interesting song as the Kay Kaiser band did it.

The comment "Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition" was attributed to a couple of people, but the most likely seems to be Chaplain William A. McGuire, who declined to "take credit" for it, saying let it stay a mystery and the song represent everyone who was there.

Hi Ben,
According to Fleet Chaplain McGuire's  family historian, William "Bill" LeMay,  the phrase was said by Chaplain Howell Forgy on USS New Orleans. The error was poor research by LIFE, Nov 2, 1942, who placed McGuire on the cover. In the New York Herald Tribune Nov 1, 1942, he denied the quotation. In William A McGuire's autobiography, Rig For Church (NY: MacMillan Co; 1942), he denied saying the quotation.

The location of Fleet Chaplain McGuire when the attack began is clouded, not just from LIFE magazine's error, but from film shown in John Ford's famous DECEMBER 7 movie. Cinematographer Greg Toland had "staged" Fleet Claplain McGuire giving an open air Mass then sailors dispersed on the run as he gave the news of the attack...but that was staged footage.

He was actually in a boat sent for him by USS California headed down SE Loch in the midst of the aerial torpedo drops...near the location where US Naval PROCEEDINGS and NAVAL HISTORY articles suggest a midget sub was firing on Battleship Row.

Did Chaplain Forgy say the famous quote? Confirmation is from:

Chaplain Howell M Forgy: "...And Pass the Ammunition" (NY: D-Appleton-Century Co; 1944)

Howell M Forgy: "I Praised the Lord - They Passed the Ammunition" Navy Magazine Dec 1964 p46-47 (reprinted from Family Weekly, Sunday suppliment, Dec 1, 1993).

"Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition" August 1943 newsclipping printed in THE PELICAN newsletter of USS New Orleans Reunion Assn, Vol 69, Aug 1994.

Thanks, as I mentioned, my notes are boxed and my library was destroyed...I have to try to go by memory, hoping someone will cue off of it and give a correction where required.  All I could remember was that it was supposed to be a ship berthed in the Southwest Loch that lost its power tie to shore and its AA rounds had to be passed by hand, and the stories diverge, but a chaplain came by, (various reasons, bringing water, carrying a bible, wanting to hang out where the action was, etc.) was giving words of encouragement as (one story) a Val flew down the Loch toward BB Row (or maybe it was the bomb that near missed the Honolulu) and he made the statement.  When the song came out, the gun crew wanted him to identify himself, but he demurred, saying it was better not known, and the song and statement could represent everyone.  I think the New Orleans  was there (in the SW Loch), with the dock and then San Francisco between it and the Honolulu and then the St. Louis, so that would work.  

Actually, the exact same statement has been attributed to a Methodist minister at the seige, or battle of Ft. Stanwix in 1777 or 78 when the British and Indians attacked.  I think it was worked into "Drums Along the Mohawk."  Maybe it will be in "Pearl Harbor."
