It was nineteen hundred and twenty-nine (run come see)
I remember the day pretty well
Nineteen hundred and twenty-nine
Run come see Jerusalem

There was talk about a storm in the island (run come see)
My God what a beautiful morning
It was in nineteen hundred and twenty nine
Run come see I remember that day very well
It was in nineteen hundred and twenty nine
Run come see Jerusalem

That day they were talkin' 'bout a storm in the islands
My God what a beautiful morning
They were talkin' 'bout a storm in the islands
Run come see Jerusalem

That day there were three ships a leavin' out the harbour
The Ethel the Myrtle and the Pretoria
There were three ships a leavin' out the harbour
Run come see Jerusalem

These ships were bound for a neighbouring island
With the mothers and children on board
These ships were bound for a neighbouring island
Run come see Jerusalem

Now the Pretoria was out on the ocean
Rocking from side to side
Yes the Pretoria was out on the ocean
Run come see Jerusalem

My God when the first wave hit the Pretoria
The mothers come hauling to their children my God
When the first wave hit the Pretoria
Run come see Jerusalem

My God there were thirty-three souls on the water
Oh my God they were swimming and praying to the good Lord
There were thirty three souls on the water
Run come see Jerusalem

My God now George Brown he was the captain
He shouted come my children come pray
He said "Come now witness your judgment"
Run come see Jerusalem

It was in nineteen hundred and twenty nine
Run come see I remember that day very well
It was in nineteen hundred and twenty nine
Run come see Jerusalem
