I was wondering if anybody knows who sang "the Sinking of the Titanic". It is the arlo guthrie like one. I can't for the life of me find it. My Dad doesn't know either. I haven't heard it before but he says its as good as Alice's Restaurant. Something to do about a guy that worked in a rope factory, quits and goes on the titanic and gets the captain stoned or what not. I am pretty vague here since I haven't heard the song but I am on a quest to find it.

Sounds like Jaimie Brocketts song. I suspect it is an older blues tune however. Mentions Jack Johnson, the boxer, who wasn't allowed aboard because he was black. Urban legend perhaps.

Leadbelly song I bet.

Don

Fare Thee Well Titanic Fare Thee Well

It was midnight on the sea,
Band playin' "Nearer My God to Thee"
Cryin', "Fare thee, Titanic, fare the well,"
Titanic when it got its load,
Captail hollered, "All aboard,"
Cryin', "Fare thee, Titanic, fare the well,"

Jack Johnson want to get on board,
Captain said, "I ain't hauling no coal,"
Cryin', "Fare thee, Titanic, fare the well,"

Titanic was comin 'round the curve,
When she ran in to a big iceberg,
Cryin', "Fare thee, Titanic, fare the well,"

Titanic was sinkin' down,
Had lifeboats all around
Cryin', "Fare thee, Titanic, fare the well,"

Had them lifeboats all around,
Savin the women and children, lettin' men go down,
Cryin', "Fare thee, Titanic, fare the well,"

Jack Johnson heard the mighty shock
Mighta seen him doin' the Eagle Rock
Cryin', "Fare thee, Titanic, fare the well,"

When the women and children got to land,
Crying "Lord have mercy on my man,"
Cryin', "Fare thee, Titanic, fare the well,"

Then there is Harry Chapin's 'Dance Band on the Titanic', although that's not what our guest is asking for either. Sorry!

Definately Jamie Brockett's song...

Yeah, it's very much like "Alice's Resturant" in it's lenght. Some 16 minutes long...

I have the LP that it's on so if you can't find it, PM me and I'll make you a tape of it...

There's a recent discussion of Leadbelly's "Titanic" and various people's variations, including a link to Jamie Brackett's website which includes a long sound clip of his complete song/storytelling performance:
