        Gordon Lightfoot - "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald"

        Right on, Bubba! One of the best-written songs in the American musicography! That's not a word but it should be. "The Edmund Fitzgerald" has always given me the shivers.

          I think the group name is rather ironic to the song subject!

          The Cheers - "Black Denim Trousers"

            The gloomy topic is producing some of the best songs we've ever had.

              MattM37, first time I heard it, we were on our way to hunt in Colorado my first time.

              I was mesmerized by the song, but not by Lightfoot.
              The song stuck with me and I would stumble into it on occasion.
              I've got it on "fake note" and can play it on guitar, but it's so long I can't remember all the words! LOL!
              On average, a song only lasts about 3 minutes. "The Edmund Fitzgerald" is over 6 minutes long! It's like learning a speech!

                I remember singing it in elementary school music class, but I'm sure we didn't learn the whole thing. The shipwreck itself, I was only a tot at the time but learned more about it in my 20s when the book "The Perfect Storm" came out, about the Andrea Gail in Gloucester, Mass., and I looked up some stuff about other shipwrecks. (And I just now recollected, we talked about the lake "Gitchee Gumee" on here a while back! About that line "the lake never gives up its dead" because the water is so cold and the bodies never float up to the surface. )

                  Yeppers!

                  Superior it's said, never gives up her dead....

                  From what I've read, they never did locate the ship.

                    The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald

                    Lyrics

                    The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down
                    Of the big lake they called Gitche Gumee
                    The lake, it is said, never gives up her dead
                    When the skies of November turn gloomy
                    With a load of iron ore twenty-six thousand tons more
                    Than the Edmund Fitzgerald weighed empty
                    That good ship and true was a bone to be chewed
                    When the gales of November came early
                    The ship was the pride of the American side
                    Coming back from some mill in Wisconsin
                    As the big freighters go, it was bigger than most
                    With a crew and good captain well seasoned
                    Concluding some terms with a couple of steel firms
                    When they left fully loaded for Cleveland
                    And later that night when the ship's bell rang
                    Could it be the north wind they'd been feelin'?
                    The wind in the wires made a tattle-tale sound
                    And a wave broke over the railing
                    And every man knew, as the captain did too
                    T'was the witch of November come stealin'
                    The dawn came late and the breakfast had to wait
                    When the gales of November came slashin'
                    When afternoon came it was freezin' rain
                    In the face of a hurricane west wind
                    When suppertime came, the old cook came on deck sayin'
                    "Fellas, it's too rough to feed ya"
                    At seven PM, a main hatchway caved in, he said
                    "Fellas, it's been good to know ya"
                    The captain wired in he had water comin' in
                    And the good ship and crew was in peril
                    And later that night when his lights went outta sight
                    Came the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald
                    Does any one know where the love of God goes
                    When the waves turn the minutes to hours?
                    The searchers all say they'd have made Whitefish Bay
                    If they'd put fifteen more miles behind her
                    They might have split up or they might have capsized
                    They may have broke deep and took water
                    And all that remains is the faces and the names
                    Of the wives and the sons and the daughters
                    Lake Huron rolls, Superior sings
                    In the rooms of her ice-water mansion
                    Old Michigan steams like a young man's dreams
                    The islands and bays are for sportsmen
                    And farther below Lake Ontario
                    Takes in what Lake Erie can send her
                    And the iron boats go as the mariners all know
                    With the gales of November remembered
                    In a musty old hall in Detroit they prayed
                    In the maritime sailors' cathedral
                    The church bell chimed 'til it rang twenty-nine times
                    For each man on the Edmund Fitzgerald
                    The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down
                    Of the big lake they called Gitche Gumee
                    Superior, they said, never gives up her dead
                    When the gales of November come early

                      Yeah, I think it’s an artist thing. Funny how that works.

                                If you were in a Pat McManus story, you'd still be in your driveway right now, trying to get the damn trailer lights to work. Hopefully that's not the case and you're well on your way. Hope you enjoy the long weekend. Watch out for cigars, logging trucks, and know-it-alls.
