Titanic (Rise No More)

Lyrics

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

CHORUS:
Lost on the great Titanic
Sinking to rise no more;
The number, sixteen hundred
That failed to reach the shore.

There were paupers, merchants, and rich men
Sailing out on this boat;
And when it sank in the ocean
You could see their bodies float.

The men stood back like heroes.
Sending their wives to the shore;
They kissed, shook hands, and parted,
To meet on earth no more.

The band was playing sadly,
“Nearer, My God, To Thee;”
lt seemed to play its utmost
As it sank in the deep blue sea.

Variant of “Lost on the Lady Elgin.”
