Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Wreck of the Shenandoah
Thanks, rich r, that was fast! I really thought it would be so obscure that no one would know it... I've run searches on the web for it for a few months but never thought to ask!

Incidentally, I seem to remember another verse which went,

A sobbing wife and children,
A mother's broken heart,
Are mourning for their loved ones,
But the storm tore them apart.

It may have been added somewhere along the line. I don't remember where in the sequence it fit... but the rest is as I remember it.

I also remember an article in Life magazine along about 1960 or so about the incident. -=Jim=-
