Lyrics

OORAH UP!
© 2006, Mitch Townley / Scott Hamilton

(verse)
TEN HOURS IN, TWO DAYS TO GO
ON A SOUTHBOUND TURN AROUND TO SAN ANTONE
PARKED MY RIG AT A STOP NORTH OF NEW ORLEANS
SHARED SOME HARD LUCK STORIES AND SOME BLACK COFFEE
WITH A STORM SURVIVOR WEARING OLD FATIGUES
ASKED HIM WHAT IT WAS THAT GOT HIM THROUGH
HE SAID PARIS ISLAND, CLASS OF SIXTY-TWO WHERE I LEARNED

(chorus)
GIVE A WAR CRY, SOUND OFF! OORAH UP!
NEVER GIVE IN WHEN THINGS GET TOUGH
NO WAY, NO SIR, NOT ANY TIME
FROM YOUR GUT GIVE A BATTLE CRY
QUITTIN DON'T RUN IN OUR BLOOD
JUST HUNKER DOWN AND OORAH UP!

(verse)
TURNS OUT HE WAS A COMPANY MAN
THIRD BATTALION, FIRST MARINES, VIETNAM
CAME HOME WITH A PURPLE HEART AND A MEAN TATTOO
HIS BUDDIES GAVE HIM IN THE JUNGLE, TO SALUTE HIS SEMPER FI, WON'T DIE ATTITUDE
TALKED ALOT ABOUT STANDING TALL AND TOUGH
HE SAID YOU GOTTA FACE LIFE WITH YOUR SLEEVES ROLLED UP

(chorus)
REPEAT CHORUS

(bridge)
I ASKED HIM IF HE'D EVER MET A PRIVATE JAMES
TOLD HIM HOW MY DAD WENT MIA
HE SAID "NO, BUT I KNOW THE PRICE HE PAID
AND I THINK OF IT EV'RY TIME I SAY .....

(chorus)
REPEAT CHORUS
COME ON AND OORAH UP!
