Semper Paratus chords
(Always Ready)
The United States Coast Guard theme song
Capt. Francis Van Boskerck, USCG

C7 FFrom Aztec Shore to Arctic Zone,
C7 Fto Europe and Far East
C7 F A7 DmThe Flag is carried by our ships,
G7 Cin times of war and peace
C7 FAnd never have we struck it yet,
C7 Fin spite of foemen's might,
C7 F A7 Dmwho cheered our crews and cheered again,
F C7 Ffor showing how to fight.
C7 FWe're always ready for the call,
C7 Fwe place our trust in Thee.
C7 F A7 DmThrough surf and storm and howling gale,
G7 Chigh shall our purpose be
C7 F"Semper Paratus" is our guide,
C7 Four fame, our glory, too.
C7 F A7 DmTo fight to save or fight and die!
F C7 FAye! Coast Guard, we are for you.
"Surveyor" and "Narcissus," The "Eagle" and "Dispatch," The "Hudson" and the "Tampa," These names are hard to match; From Barrow's shores to Paraguay, Great Lakes or Ocean's wave, The Coast Guard fights through storms and winds To punish or to save.
C7 FWe're always ready for the call,
C7 Fwe place our trust in Thee.
C7 F A7 DmThrough surf and storm and howling gale,
G7 Chigh shall our purpose be
C7 F"Semper Paratus" is our guide,
C7 Four fame, our glory, too.
C7 F A7 DmTo fight to save or fight and die!
F C7 FAye! Coast Guard, we are for you.
Aye! We've been "Always Ready" To do, to fight, or die! Write glory to the shield we wear In letters to the sky. To sink the foe or save the maimed Our mission and our pride. We'll carry on 'til Kingdom Come Ideals for which we've died.
C7 FWe're always ready for the call,
C7 Fwe place our trust in Thee.
C7 F A7 DmThrough surf and storm and howling gale,
G7 Chigh shall our purpose be
C7 F"Semper Paratus" is our guide,
C7 Four fame, our glory, too.
C7 F A7 DmTo fight to save or fight and die!
F C7 FAye! Coast Guard, we are for you.
