The S.S. Lurline
Recorded by Johnny Horton
Written by Joe Nixon and Tommy Thomas

The rattle of the chain as the anchor rolls
Let's skip a nod as the whistle blows
G7 C
As me and my baby heard those engines whine

She gave a shake and a mighty groan
The stern went down and the bow did moan
G7 C
As we set sail on the S.S. Lurline

We picked up steam on the briny deep
I gotta deep fall wedding that I'm gonna keep
G7 C
I gotta see the captain and have him make you mine

Upon the bow in the silver spray
I said I'd love honor and obey
G7 C
We tied the knot on the S.S. Lurline

The porpoise played as we sailed along
The trade winds seemed to hum our song
G7 C
As evening fell and the stars begin to shine

I saw moonbeams in your hair
There had never had been a bride so fair
G7 C
As I held you close on the S.S. Lurline

I know I'll never forget that day
Those two words that I heard you say
G7 C
When you said I do and promised to be mine

Spring of love has reached December
Darling I'll always remember
G7 C
Our honeymoon on the S.S. Lurline
