  1. Calm Before the Storm

Lyrics

The ferryman his life
The travelers delighted and
The engineers will strive, to overcome
The waters of the Tay
Have not been passed this way
Victorian days and journeys long
On a wild winter's night
Christmas and excitement
Families waiting, to greet their loved ones
The journey has begun
No-one will return from, the wreckage of the train
Life taken away
Taken away by the bridge
O'er the Tay
A beautiful thing, blowing away
And life, perished and died
Not a soul would survive
That fateful night
The rhythm of the train
Crashing through the rain
The signalman's exchange, would all be in vain
The waters of the Tay
Have not been passed this way
Victorian days and journeys long
The dark and misty skies
The terror in their eyes
As they go to their graves
In the depths of the Tay
As the train crashed through the waves
People drowning in the water
No-one was saved
That's just the calm, the calm before the storm

And the storm, blows hard and fast
And the waves with thunder crash
Save our souls
Save our souls
