Gareth: great/accurate song, does it have its own tune, or is it to a 'standard' ?
Reminds me of the opening lines from W S Gilbert's "Etiquette"
The Ballyshannon foundered off the coast of Cariboo,
And down in fathoms many went the Captain and the crew.
Down went the owners-greedy men whom hope of gain allured,
Oh, dry the starting tear, for they were heavily insured.
