Our most recent tragedy..based on comments in Chinook observer and young waitress in restaurant,,friend in paper said she wished she lived in some town where they did not know what lost at sea meant. forgot a line and will add later..not inc luding his name at this time.

I wish I lived in Phoenix or some hot and dusty town
Where the ocean did not roar at night and no one had to drown
Where fish were raised in fish tanks as fish were meant to be tell them
And no one had to risk their lives going out to sea

Where lost at sea meant nothing but a quaint and empty phrase
And not a search and rescue that went on and on for days

And you walked the beach at sunrise in case something should wash in

You go to your reunion and something is amiss
You say there are some young men gone I never got to kiss
I never got to tell them just what they meant to me
I never got to beg them stay home stay home from sea

As you eat your fish and chips your sushi or your taco
THink on how that fish was caught by someone from Ilwaco
Or Cannon Beach or Seaside or McGowan or Chinook
And the very fish you're eating was the lsat one on his hook

So here's to the Cecilia and her brave and gentle crew
And mostly >>>>>>> he's the only one I knew
This was their joy and calling and the sea was their delight
But the whole town is in morning since their ship went down that night
