Musical accompaniment

I have now added a musical accompaniment to the site, to get you in the mood for the tales of conflicts and bitterly fought litigation to come. The tune is of course, the Battle Hymn of the Marines.

The clean version of the lyrics is below, if you feel like singing along.

From the Halls of Montezuma
To the Shores of Tripoli;
We fight our country’s battles
In the air, on land and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title
of United States Marine.

Our flag’s unfurled to every breeze
From dawn to setting sun;
We have fought in ev’ry clime and place
Where we could take a gun;
In the snow of far-off Northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes;
You will find us always on the job–
The United States Marines.

Here’s health to you and to our Corps
Which we are proud to serve
In many a strife we’ve fought for life
And never lost our nerve;
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven’s scenes;
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines.


One thought on “Musical accompaniment

  1. Hallelujah, I have been humming/whistling this tune for months now and have struggled to identify it……..and lo and behold you have cured my consternation with your “musical interlude”, well done sir!

    On a more serious note, I commend you for your attempt to create a single resource and I hope it will remain impartial and useful for both sides of the credit hire battlefield!
