Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Olden Days, Before the Oceans Rose
Hmmm. On one hand, this ("The Great Nebraska Sea", by Blake Hodgetts) is probably *not* the song you're looking for -- referring as it does to a somewhat different cause for climate change -- but the central conceit is similar, and perhaps this will help zero in on the right song.
"Then the land sank down
And the oceans hurried in
And we lost a fifth of our geography;
More than 14 million souls
Found their way to Heaven's rolls
With the coming of the Great Nebraska Sea."
