Hearing the Navy hymn, Eternal Father, Strong to save , at local events of a patriotic nature always forms a lump in my throat as it may to other Navy guys here in the US as well as Briton as we share that anthem, My favorite version is on YouTube with the Annapolis Mens’ Glee Club singing it.
Interestingly, when first playing the fiddle it was hunting and pecking by ear, and one of the very first songs I learned was the National Anthem. I must have been inspired by baseball season not starting up because of the virus. Turns out my fiddle just started playing the National Anthem and it extended quite smoothly into Take Me Out to the Ball Game. So I play them as one song now.
Yeah, I would love to have some patriotic songs as well. They’re actually great songs and I know them already.
