[G] Twas a ship out on the ocean
Just a speck against the [C] sky
A [D] melia Earhart flying [C] out that [G] day.
With her partner captain Newnan on the 2nd of [C]July
Her [D] plane fell in the ocean far [G] away.
There's a [C] beautiful beautiful [G] field
Far away in a land that is [D] fair
[G] Happy landings to you Amelia Ear [C] hart
Fare [D]well first lady of the air
Well an half an hour later an SOS was heard
The signal weak but still the voice was brave
In those shark infested waters
Her plane went down that night
In the blue Pacific to a water grave
Now you have heard my story
Of that awful tragedy
We prayed that she might fly home safe again.
Tho in years to come others blazed a trail across the sea
We'll ne'er forget Amelia and her plane.
