Wasn't that a mighty storm? Yeah
Wasn't that a mighty storm in the morning?
Wasn't that a mighty storm?
Blew all the people away
Galveston had a sea wall
Meant to keep the water down
High tide from the ocean
Sent water all over town
Wasn't that a mighty storm? Yeah
Wasn't that a mighty storm in the morning?
Wasn't that a mighty storm?
Blew all the people away
Well, now the year was 1900
Fifty long years ago
Death came walking on the water
Death calls, you gotta go
The trumpets sounded warning
Said it's time to leave this place
But no one thought about leaving town
Till death stared them in the face
Wasn't that a mighty storm?
Wasn't that a mighty storm in the morning?
Wasn't that a mighty storm?
Blew all the people away
Then the sea started boiling
A thing that no ship could withstand
Think I heard a sea captain cryin' out
Somebody save a drownin' man
Had two trains loaded
People trying to leave the town
Tracks gave way to the water now
All of those people drowned
Wasn't that a mighty storm?
Wasn't that a mighty storm in the morning?
Wasn't that a mighty storm?
Yes, blew all the people away
I said way back in 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 the knee
You came and put a stone on my mother, oh
Coming after me
Wasn't that a mighty storm?
Wasn't that a mighty storm in the morning?
Wasn't that a mighty storm?
Blew all the people away
Wasn't that a mighty storm?
Wasn't that a mighty storm in the water?
Wasn't that a mighty storm?
Blew all the people away
