The Titanic

This song is by Lead Belly and appears…

Captain Smith, when he got his load
Mighta heard him holl'in', All aboa'd
Cryin', Fare thee, Titanic, fare thee well
Jack Johnson wanted to ge on boa'd
Captain Smith hollered, "I ain' haulin' no coal"
Cryin', Fare thee, Titanic, fare thee well
It was midnight on the sea
Band playin', "Nearer My God to Thee"
Cryin', Fare thee, Titanic, fare thee well
Had them lifeboats aroun'
Savin' the women, lettin' the men go down
Cryin', Fare thee, Titanic, fare thee well
When the women got out on land
Cryin', "Lawd, have mercy on my man"
Cryin', Fare thee, Titanic, fare thee well
Jack Johnson heard the mighty shock
Mighta seen the black rascal doin' the Eagle Rock
Cryin', Fare thee, Titanic, fare thee well
Black man oughta shout for joy
Never lost a girl or either a boy
Cryin', Fare thee, Titanic, fare thee well
Hope this helps you Mr. Seed
Consider it a "peace offering"
