Off We Go Into The Wild Blue Yonder

 The U.S. Air Force Song - Capt. Robert Crawford

G                            D             G
Off we go into the wild blue yonder
C                     G           D
climbing high into the sun
G                                             D             G
Here they come zooming to meet our thunder,
A                                        D
At 'em boys, Give 'er the gun!
G                                              D                G
Down we dive, spouting our flame from under,
C                                B7
off with one hell of a roar!
      Em      E                 Am      A7
We live in fame or go down in flame,
G                                  D    G     D
Nothing can stop the U.S. Air Force!

G                                           D        G
Minds of men fashioned a crate of thunder,
C                  G          D
Sent it high into the blue
G                      D                 G
Hands of men blasted the world asunder
A                       D
How they lived God only knew! - God only knew
G                                          D            G
Souls of men dreaming of skies to conquer
C                      B7
Gave us wings, ever to soar
Em                    E            Am               A7
With scouts before and bombers galore
G                               D      G   D
nothing will stop the U.S. 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 U.S. Air Force

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 the nose out of the blue
Flying men, guarding the nation's border
We'll be there followed by more
In echelon we carry on
Nothing will stop the U.S. Air Force
