lyrics

The bells were ringing early throughout the streets of town
Out upon the water no trouble could be found
Eighteen hundred fifty three the bells of Saint James sound
No bell can help a man of God whose ship is going down
The ship is going down
16 started out that day the morning of the bell
7 stayed beneath the waves forever damned to hell
No time to help your fellow man you both will surely drown
Cut the rope and save yourself the ship is going down
The ship is going down
Dressed in white they rang the bell 8 times to set them free
For the ship they sailed upon and 7 left to sea
Eighteen hundred fifty three the bells of Saint James sound
No bell can help a man of God whose ship is going down
The ship is going down
