titanic

Lyrics

1. Oh they built the ship Titanic to sail the ocean blue;
And they thought they had a ship that the sea would not leak through;
But the Lord’s almighty hand knew that ship would never stand.
It was sad when that great ship went down.

Refrain
Oh it was sad, so sad,
Oh it was sad, so sad,
It was sad when that great ship went down
To the bottom of the…
Husbands and wives, little children lost their lives.
It was sad when that great ship went down.

2. Well, the ship set sail from England, and not very far from shore.
When the rich folks refused to associate with the poor.
So they sent them down below where they’d be the first to go.
It was sad when that great ship went down. Refrain

3. Oh, the boat was ’bout to sink, and the sides about to burst,
When the captain shouted out, “All women and children first!”
Oh, the captain tried to wire, But the wires were on fire,
It was sad when the great ship went down. Refrain

4. Oh, they swung the lifeboats out o’er the deep and raging sea,
When the ship’s band struck up with “Nearer My God to Thee.”
Little children wept and cried, as the waves swept o’er the side,
It was sad when the great ship went down. Refrain
