Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Oil Commercial Song by Clancy Brothers
Thank you Jim.

According to this website it was Gulf and not Exon that ran the commercial and the ship was the tanker Universe Ireland.

We have the chorus here but we still need all the stanzas since the song was 2 minutes long. The title of the song is "BRINGING HOME THE OIL" Here is the chorus, (Tune: same as "The Gallant Forty TWA")

Bringing home the oil, me boys
Bringing home the oil
Sailin' all around the world
Bringing home the oil
A workin on a giant ship
It's very hard we toil
Sailin in to Bantry Bay
Bringin home the oil

Can anyone please supply the verses.
