"Daddy Was a Navy Man" as written by and Larry Shell Larry Cordle....
I don't know why he liked the
Water
He'd never seen the ocean before
But he was young and thirsty for
Adventure
And our country was at war
The poster in the window
Promised a chance to see the
World
And he figured that he had a
Score to settle
For the boys that died at pearl

[Chorus]
He's proud and so am I
That he went and did his part
And I love to hear the stories
That he tells
Of typhoons, tattoos, geisha girls
And battles he's been in
Okinawa, Iwo Jima, and Saipan
And for the longest time
He wouldn't drive a car made in
Japan
Daddy was a navy man

Says it was just his duty
That's why he volunteered
And when you're seventeen years
Old
You're just too dumb to be scared
And there's a friend he talks
About
He says he'll see again someday
Cause you know old sailors
Never die
They just sail away

[Chorus]

My daddy was a navy man
