So Far From The Clyde...
« on: December 22, 2011, 09:27:14 am »

Found this via Boatnerd and thought I'd share.  A very good song that perfectly captures the emotion around the scrapping of these mighty steel leviathans.

They had a last supper
The day of the beaching
She's a dead ship sailing
skeleton crew
The galley is empty
The stove pots are cooling
With what's left of a stew

Her time is approaching
The captain moves over
The hangman steps in
To do what he's paid for
With the wind and the tide
She goes proud ahead steaming
And he drives her hard into the shore!

I'll have to look into Mark Knopfler's work more.
