And the great boat sank
And the okies fled
And the great emancipator took a bullet in the head
In the head
Took a bullet in the back of the head

It was not december and it was not in may
It was 14th of april that was ruination day
That's the day
That's the day
They were one they were two
They were three they were four
They were 500 miles from their home
From their home
They were 500 miles from their home
When the iceberg hit
Then they must have known
God moves on the water
Casey jones
God moves on the water
Casey jones

It was not december and it was not may
It was 14th of april that was ruination day
That's the day
The day that is ruination day
