I heard a song about global warming at the Armory Pub Sing in Somerville MA. The singer identified the artist (but did so before singing the song, so of course I didn't write it down). The conceit of the song is that it's told from a future 50 or 100 years in our future, talking about a time before global warming caused sea level rise, and about how good they (we) had it.

I clearly remember that one of the lines of the chorus was "Back in the olden days, before the oceans rose," but periodic Google searches haven't turned anything up. I would appreciate lyrics, tune, song name, artist name, or anything you've got.

Thanks!

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."

There has been a Song Writing Comp. at the Portsmouth Maritime Festival (New Hampshire) - last year - 2017 - the winning song used that theme, but I can't find the reference to the singer or the lyric. But at least this maybe a start.....

Searching on that theme, I found this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ik7EP3ohZpc

It's not the song I'm looking for, but is relevant to my interests, thank you!
