GUEST,Tony Songs about women, but not about love (52* d) RE: Songs about women, but not about love 29 May 14


Just a ship out on the ocean, a speck against the sky.
Amelia Earhart flying that sad day.
With her partner, Captain Noonan, on the second of July.
Her plane fell in the ocean far away.

CHORUS:
There's a beautiful, beautiful field
far away, in a land that is fair.
Happy landings to you, Amelia Earhart.
Farewell, first lady of the air.

Half an hour later her SOS was heard.
Her signal weak but still her voice was brave.
In shark-infested waters her plane went down that night
in the blue Pacific to a watery grave.

CHORUS

Now you've heard my story of that awful tragedy.
We all pray she'll fly home safe again.
In years to come, though others blaze a trail across the sea,
we'll ne'er forget Amelia and her plane.

CHORUS
