Album Ballads And Railroad Songs. The Sinking Of The Titanic Lyrics. It was on one Monday morning, just about one o'clock When the great Titanic began to reel and rock Then the people began to cry, saying, "Lord, we're gonna die" It was sad when that great ship went down. When they built the great Titanic, they said what would they do They said they'd build a ship that water could not go through But God, with His mighty hand, showed the world that it could not stand It was sad when that great ship went down. It was sad when that great ship went down It was sad when that great ship went down There were husbands and wives, little children lost their lives It was sad when that great ship went down.
