"Marie Christine" as written by and Gordon Lightfoot....
Now have you seen the lighthouse shining from the rock
For the ship Marie Christine and all her gallant lot
Now have you seen the lighthouse, oh we are close to land
Cried the brave young captain to his wretched band

Now have you seen the harbor cried Marie Christine
Have you seen the jagged rocks in the waters in between
Now have you seen the lighthouse, oh save me if you can
For if you do I promise you I'll never sail again

Now have you seen the lighthouse shining from the rock
Cried the brave young captain to his wretched lot
Now gather all your photographs and don your coats of blue
If anyone can save us now, Marie Christine it is you

When at first I saw Marie Christine the woman that she was
I signed aboard to man her sails and honor well her cause
I christened her with old champagne and I drove her to the west
Of all the men who sailed on her, in truth I sailed her best

Now have you seen the lighthouse shining from the rock
For the ship Marie Christine and all her gallant lot
Now have you seen the lighthouse, oh we are close to land
Cried the brave young captain to his wretched band

Now come all you would be sailors
All you would be sailors, oh, all you would be sailors
If anyone can save us now, Marie Christine it is you
If anyone can save us now, Marie Christine it is you
