Thread Name: Lyr Req: Bringing Home the Oil (Clancy Brothers)
Subject: Lyr Req: Oil Commercial Song by Clancy Brothers
We have to go back to the early 1970s for this one. This was a time when the Alaska pipeline from Valdez to Prudhoe Bay was coming on line.
I am not sure but I think that it was Exon who aired a television commercial showing one of their super-tankers in Alaskan waters. The Clancy Brothers were singing this commercial song entitled "Bringing Home The Oil". The words may have been written by Exon but the tune was clearly "The Gallant Forty TWA".
If anybody remembers this I would like to get the words to that commercial.
