Thread Name: Lyr Req: Scorpion Departs But Never Returns (Ochs)
Subject: Lyrs to a Submarine Song by Phil Ochs?
There were a couple of inquiries about songs of subs in a few recent threads, so I went back to an old thread 'Steel Tubs & Subs' & Rich r mentioned the thresher song by Phil Ochs & another song which I somehow passed on by , it's about another sub that went down in 1968, the USS Scorpion & he has it by the name of "The Scorpion Departs & Never Returns". Does anyone have words or any info to the song, this was the sub my brother served on & by God's luck, missed it's last run. Like the Thresher, she took down all hands. Thanks to all. Barry
