"Down with that(the) old canoe"

circa 1937

Blue Sky Boys or some such brother duet as I recall
RCA Victor had it on a black label 78

"It was twenty-five years ago,
when the winds of death did blow
And spread ot on te oceans far and wide
That great ship sailed away,
with her passangers that day
to never, ever reach the other side.

Sailing out to win her fame
Titanic was her name
When she was but 500 miles from shore
Many passanger and crew went down with that ol canoe
They all went down to never ride no more."

There are more verses but I can't recall them

Happy hnting
