lyrics

The latest modern marvel
Conveyed by fire—steam
Swiftest new example
Makes port in Queen City
Eager Captain crowing
Come about— turn upstream
Call more black coal for stoking
Boiler swollen at the seam

Retiring to his stateroom
Commotion beckons to the deck
Stroll topside witness landfall
Well-worn bible at his breast
Port of Cincinnati
Stands starboard in repose
Reverend offers blessings as
Colossal boiler blows

GOD BLESS THIS SHIP
LAST WORDS TO LEAVE HIS MOUTH
MOSELLE EXPLODES
ELIJAH NORTH GOES FORTH
VAULTED, CATAPULTED, DUE SOUTH

Among the decking, planks, debris
strewn over Southbank sand
Remains discovered
Unscathed bible in his hand
