Titanic Blues

This song is by Hi Henry Brown and Charley Jordan and appears on the compilation Titanic Songs (1998) and on the compilation People Take Warning! Murder Ballads & Disaster Songs, 1913-1938 (2007).

Early one mornin', just about four o'clock
It was early one mornin', just about four o'clock
When that old Titanic began to reel and rock

Smith took his glasses and walked out to the front
Captain Smith took his glass and he walked out to the front
And he spied the iceberg a-comin', gon' Lord, have to bump

Some was drinkin', some was playin' cards
And it's some was drinkin', some was playin' cards
Some was in their corner prayin' to their God

Little children cryin', "Mama, mama, what shall we do?"
Little children cryin', "Mama, mama, what shall we do?"
Captain Smith said, "Children, I'll take care of you"

'Tanic sinkin' in the deep blue sea
Titanic sinkin' in the deep blue sea
And the band all playin' "Nearer My God To Thee"
