Waves of the Navy
Does anyone have a good transcription of the song "Waves of the Navy". My mother-in-law is a 91 year old Navy Wave veteran of WWII. Just yesterday she told us about how the Waves had their own song, and then--bless her heart--she tried to sing it for us. I did find a copy of the original music on line, but there are a couple of notes I'm not sure of. Anyway--I want to surprise her at our 4th of July concert during the patriotic medley by including "Waves of the Navy" harmonizing with "Anchors Aweigh". Just need a melody part--any key--I can make the rest of it work. Thanks.
Re: Waves of the Navy
I'll bet you The Navy Band in D.C. has it. I don't remember seeing it in any of the fleet libraries, but I never looked for it, either.
Another good bet would be here:
WAVES National = WAVES = Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Services
Adams A1, satin gold lacquer, 0.55 (and it's twin in clear lacquer
Adams F2, gold brass bell 0.55
Yamaha 8335LA (Navy horn)
Adams ACB Prologue
NY Bach Mercury
Marcienkewicz Rembrandt flugel (for sale! Contact Trent Austin for details)
French Besson Classic C
Yamaha 761 Eb/D
Weril Regium Eb/D (for sale soon)
vintage Benge pocket trumpet
Austin Custom Brass mouthpieces
More news to come!
Re: Waves of the Navy
The info I found on Wikipedia: "WAVES of the Navy
WAVES of the Navy,
There's a ship sailing down the bay.
And she won't slip into port again
Until that Victory Day.
Carry on for that gallant ship
And for every hero brave
Who will find ashore, his man-sized chore
Was done by a Navy WAVE.
Music and words to this and other songs sung by the WAVES can be found in Marching to Victory, a 1943 booklet published at the Naval Reserve Midshipmen's School (WR), Northampton, Massachusetts."
