about

This recording is dedicated, with respect, to those tragically lost on The Empress of Ireland; and to Tom Phimister, my dear friend. Inspiration for this recording occurred while visiting The Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau, Quebec. Visit and support your favorite museum.

Track Name: The Empress of Ireland
She's made of British Steel
from top of mast to keel
The Empress of Ireland

Weighin' 14,000 tons
And carryin' 1400 someones
The Empress of Ireland

In the river bed she rests
since her untimely death

More than a thousand deaths
a thousand final breaths
on the Empress of Ireland

Throw a rose to those
still on board
The Empress of Ireland
