Thread Name: Origin: The Titanic (husbands and wives)
Subject: RE: The Titanic (husbands and wives)
The Titanic song about Jack Johnson is the one by Leadbelly. I think the song requested is the one we all sang at camp:

Husbands and wives
Little children lost their lives
It was sad when the great ship weht down

I don't know the origin but the basic theme is if you say a ship can never go down you are challanging God and he won't let you get away with it.
