The Galveston hurricane, 6,000 died 9/8/1900

        Well Galveston had a sea wall
        To keep the waters down,
        But the high tide from the ocean
        Spread the water over the town.

        CHO:    Wasn't that a mighty storm,
                Wasn't that a mighty storm, with water,
                Wasn't that a mighty storm,
                Blew the people away.

        "Wasn't that a Mighty Storm" per E von Schmidt, or Sin Killer Griffin on
        Library of Congress LP, Negro Religious Songs & Services (Lomax, 1934-42)

Full lyrics of the song as sung by Sin Killer Griffin and his prison farm congregation in thread 84455, along with the story of the Galveston Hurricane. Also a 1900 song by 'Ned Yale,' "The Texas Cyclone."
