The Lyrics

Another addition to the on-going saga of a ship that will never be forgotten.
It's a terrible day on the lake today
A terrible day in every way
For the freighter
Ed Fitzgerald

It's a dark, stormy night on Superior
A dark, gloomy night for a sailor
Would you save me?
Could you save me?

I've always wanted to sail on a vessel just like you
I've always wanted to be part of such a jolly crew

So let's make the best of this terminal day
We're in this together, we might as well pray
Will we? Shall we?
Are we--ready?
Will we meet our Maker?

Won't you please
Bend your knees?
Prepare to meet our Maker

(spoken) "A news bulletin just came in. The freighter Edmund
Fitzgerald is missing and presumed...."
