Thread Name: Lyr Req: Wreck of the Shenandoah
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Wreck of the Shenandoah
This is a song my dad used to sing to me when I was just a little guy---I'm 52 now. The "extra verse" referred to went something like this:

"A loving wife and children, a mother's broken heart,
Weeps for their loved ones since the storm tore them apart.
But they will meet up yonder, they'll see them by and by.
They'll meet again in heaven where the brave go when they die."

I have the tune in my head, but I'm no musician--sorry there's no sheet music!

Hope someone is still monitoring this thread--and I hope the info I had is useful. Thanks to rich for all his input-----------
