Lyrics

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
