Subj: The night SAC died (20th Anniversary)

THE NIGHT SAC DIED

 

It was the end of May in ‘92

When we all came to say “ADIEU”

To our old friend, tried and true

Shielding our Flag, Red, White and Blue

And the Angels cried…..the night SAC died

 

Soldiers, Generals, Airmen too

Air Crew, Ground Crew, Missiliers who

Along with civilians and families grew

To support and serve the friend all knew

The Angels cried….the night SAC died

 

We stood and watched ‘Neath darkened cloud

On a moon less night as gun fired loud

The Pipers played, the drummers beat

And as rifles twirled, bayonets unsheath’d

The Angels cried….the night SAC died

 

The Anthem played, the Flag marched by

We all stood tall, our heads raised high

When from the murk we heard the cry

Of the bomber’s roar into the sky

And the Angels cried…the night SAC died

 

Oh, call the roll of those who passed

Of men and women, all steadfast

Their sacrifice shall ever last

‘Till all we stand- a'fore the mast

And the Angels cried….the night SAC died

 

We shall remember evermore

Our friends and comrades gone before

Speak their names and light the flame

Shining bright reflect their fame

And the Angels cried…the night SAC died

 

Then the rockets in the sky

Fell to earth as if to cry

The bugles blew, the echo came

The Heavens open’d, unashamed

And the Angels cried….the night SAC died

 

That wasn’t rain from out the sky

Nor mist nor fog, how hard you try

Make no mistake from whence it came

Their sad emotion couldn’t tame

The Angels cried….the night SAC died

 

Good-by old friend, your mission done

Put to rest, the “COLD WAR” won

Your fist of steel, your dove of peace

Your olive branch, o’er globe did reach

And the Angels cried….the night SAC died

 

And daily as our lives we live

In rememb’ring now-we first must give

The Freedom which is ours to share

There is NO OTHER to compare

And the Angels cried…the night SAC died

 

How could this happen, we all said

Our loyal friend who now lies dead

The “Butler” did it, gloating with pride

(His “Chief” accomplice at his side)

And the Angels cried….the night SAC died

 

It was a saddened May in ‘92

When we all came to say “ADIEU”

To our old friend, tried and true

Shielding our Flag, Red, White and Blue

While the Angels cried….the night SAC died

 

DEDICATED TO THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF THE MEN,  WOMEN AND FAMILIES

                            WHO SERVED IN STRATEGIC AIR COMMAND 1946-1992
