Well the Time has finally come, for the Story to be told, that should have been Listened to — A Long Time Ago

This is a Song in a series Dedicated to the 34 Men Killed, and to the Survivors of the USS Liberty, attacked by the Israeli’s on June 8, 1967.

By : Vocalist – Songwriter : Catherine Faber aka Cat

 

“It’s time to open the windows and introduce a breath of fresh air. Lyndon B. Johnson is gone and so is his Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, both of whom left the USS Liberty to its fate. But there are many survivors who are still looking for answers. It is time to provide what they need and give them peace.” — Philip Giraldi

I’LL HEAR THE BOMBS AGAIN

WELL THE TIME HAS FINALLY COME, FOR THE STORY TO BE TOLD,
THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN LISTENED TO–A LONG TIME AGO.
IN 1967, ON THE 8TH DAY OF JUNE–CAME THE ATTACK OF THE LIBERTY,
AND THE NEEDLESS LOSS OF MANY OF HER CREW.

CHORUS:
AND THE LIBERTY FELL, LIKE A WOUNDED AND DYING LAMB;
THE MEN AND THEIR LIVES BETRAYED, AND THEIR SOULS WERE SURELY DAMNED.
AND ALL THE FEAR, AND THE DEATH, AND THE PAIN, WILL NEVER DEPART ME,
I’LL HEAR THE BOMBS AGAIN, ILL HEAR THE BOMBS AGAIN, I’LL HERE THE BOMBS AGAIN.

THEY SAID THAT ISRAELI FORCES KNEW NOT OF THE LIBERTY’S TRUE IDENTITY,
AND SO THEY TOOK ADVANTAGE OF HER SERENITY.
THEY ATTACKED THE SILENT SHIP, MAKING A FORTY-FOOT HOLE IN HER STARBOARD,
KILLING THIRTY-FOUR, AND WOUNDING ALMOST TWO HUNDRED MORE;
THEIR JETS SENDING DOWN MERCILESS NAPALM,
IT LOOKED LIKE A DEVIL’S STARWAR.

CHORUS:
AND THE LIBERTY FELL, LIKE A WOUNDED AND DYING LAMB;
THE MEN AND THEIR LIVES BETRAYED, AND THEIR SOULS WERE SURELY DAMNED.
AND ALL THE FEAR, AND THE DEATH, AND THE PAIN, WILL NEVER DEPART ME,
I’LL HEAR THE BOMBS AGAIN. I’LL HEAR THE BOMBS AGAIN; I’LL HEAR THE BOMBS AGAIN, AGAIN, AGAIN, AGAIN…

Catherine Faber is from the Midwest. She has been singing and playing guitar since the age of 14. She attended a local college, and worked in the medical field for several years, while playing in a part-time band. She and her husband, who is a talented singer, bass player, and keyboardist, then worked professionally full-time with their band over much of the US . Years ago, she met one of the USS Liberty survivors that heard her sing, and he asked her if she could write a couple of songs for a Liberty forum and for a movie that was possibly going to be made.

She says “I want to help the Liberty survivors to be able to get their word out about what really happened on that dreadful day, June 8, 1967″. She was asked to put the songs on the web, and they are now on numerous sites around the world.

    that the alarms didnt go off back then is still a source of wonderment to me. Bibi brags in Congress a few weeks ago that Israel is America’s “best friend” in the Middle East. Yet, thirty years ago , Amnerica had no enemies in the ME. With friends like Bibi, who needs enemies?
