Titanic

Cat. #0116 (MFH #628) - As sung by Mrs. Lula Davis, Fayettville, Arkansas on June 14, 1958

VERSE 1
Sailing out on the Titanic
Some ninety miles from shore
When suddenly it struck an iceberg
And sank to rise no more

VERSE 2
There were paupers, merchants and millionaires
Sailing out on this boat
And when it sank in th deep white foam
You could see their bodies float

VERSE 3
Lost on the great Titanic
Sinking to rise no more
Th number sixteen hundred
That failed to reach th shore

VERSE 4
Th men stood back like heros
Sending their wives to shore
They kissed, shook hands and parted
To meet on earth no more

VERSE 5
Th band was playing sadly
Near My God To Thee
It seemed to play its utmost
As it sank in th deep blue sea

VERSE 6
Lost on the great Titanic
Sinking to rise no more
Th number sixteen hundred
That failed to reach the shore
