The Titanic (Cold and Icy Sea) On the seventeenth day of April, Nineteen hundred and twelve' The ship by the name of Titanic From Liverpool left, with the swells. lt was headed for New York City With the cargoes of wealth and toll; On the shores of Newfoundland lsland She sank in the waters so cold. chorus: As the mighty ship was sinking ln the cold and icy sea, The last that the bands was heard to play Was "Nearer, My God, to thee." On board of the mighty vessel Men with millions did ride_ The doctor, the lawyer, the merchant, The rich, the poor, with their bride. The gambler with all of his money: The trimes went down the same. The sheeler now died with the cunning; The slayer now died with the slain. chorus: Note: actually, April 15, 1912 From Southern Folk Ballads, McNeill. Collected from Ervin Anglin, AK, 1951 See also Down With the Old Canoe RG
