Titanic (7)

Titanic (7)
 (words and music by Huddie Ledbetter)

 It was midnight on the sea
 Band playing, "nearer My God to Thee"
 Cryin' fare thee, Titanic, fare thee well

 Titanic, when it got its load,
 Captain hollered, "All aboard"
 Cryin' fare thee, Titanic, fare thee well

 Jack Johnson want to get on board,
 Captain said, "I ain't haulin' no coal."
 Cryin' fare thee, Titanic, fare thee well

 Titanic was comin' 'round the curve
 When it ran into that great big iceberg
 Cryin' fare thee, Titanic, fare thee well

 Titanic was sinking down,
 Had them lifeboats all around.
 Cryin' fare thee, Titanic, fare thee well

 Had them lifeboats around,
 Savin' the women and children, lettin' the men go down.
 Cryin' fare thee, Titanic, fare thee well

 Jack Johnson heard the mighty shock,
 Might 'a' seen him doin' the Eagle Rock.
 Cryin' fare thee, Titanic, fare thee well

 When the women and children got on the land,
 Cryin' "Lord have mercy on my man."
 Cryin' fare thee, Titanic, fare thee well
