      Lyrics for James Taylor - "Wasn't That a Mighty Storm"

      [Chorus]
      Wasn't that a mighty storm
      Wasn't that a mighty
      Storm in the morning
      Say, wasn't that a mighty storm
      Blew all the people away

      Well, Galveston had a sea wall
      Meant to keep the water down
      High tide from the ocean
      Sent water over Galveston

      [Chorus]

      Yeah, year was 1900
      Fifty long years ago
      Death came walking on
      The water that day
      Death calls, you gotta go

      Now the trumpets,they sounded warning
      Said it's time to leave this place
      But no one thought about leaving town
      Til death stared them in the face

      [Chorus]

      Right then the sea started boiling
      A thing that no ship could stand
      I thought I heard a captain crying out
      Somebody save a drowning man

      They had two trains loaded
      With people trying to leave town
      Tracks gave way to the water now
      And all of those people drowned

      [Chorus]

      I said the year was 1900
      Fifty long years ago
      Death came walking on the water
      Death calls, you gotta go

      I said Death, your hands are clammy
      You got them on my knee
      You came and threw a stone at my mother
      And now you're coming after me.

      [Chorus: x2]
