Intro: 
Em

Verse: 
Em             Am        Em
On April 10th, nineteen twelve
Em             Am       Em
A story began for which we must delve
Em                              Am         Em
Out of the port of South Hampton the liner did leave
Em                       Am        Em
On a cruise to Manhattan or so they believed
Em                          Am      Em
It was the largest boat that man ever built
Em                             Am           Em
Born from men who had breathed in the dust and the silt
Em                      Am         Em
A boat they told us couldn't've been sunk
Em                    Am      Em
Whoever promised that must've been drunk

Chorus:
G  Em       Am                   Em
Oh Titanic how could you let us down?
G  Em       Am                                                          Em
Oh Titanic you're lying on the bottom of the water just a-waiting to be found

Verse:
Edward John Smith was the man in command
It was his vessel and it wasn't on land
Murdoch at his side his crew was the best
Hand-picked for the cruise above all the rest
Harland & Wolff had built the ship strong
To sail for many years and last very long
But when it came to lifeboats they could have used more
Well they just couldn't imagine what they'd be needed for

Chorus:
Oh Titanic how could you let us down?
Oh Titanic you're lying on the bottom of the water just a-waiting to be found

Verse:
A ship was cruising straight to New York
While the millionaires ate caviar from the tip of a fork
The immigrants huddled down in the hull
That big 'ole boat was certainly full
Yes the White Star Line was known for its greed
Never tolerated stowaways or people in need
The dining room's decked out in silver and gold
While the tramps in steerage shiverin' in cold

Chorus:
Oh Titanic how could you let us down?
Oh Titanic you're lying on the bottom of the water just a-waiting to be found

Verse:
Up in the crow's nest Fleet was perched
His duty was clear he just had to search
For an iceberg or anything, that was clear
But the only trouble was it was already too near
Well the iceberg tore into the side and caused a gash
While the people on deck were having a bash
The bowlegs did beck and the people screamed
The impossible had happened or so it had seemed

Chorus:
Oh Titanic how could you let us down?
Oh Titanic you're lying on the bottom of the water just a-waiting to be found

Verse:
So many people plunged right into the waters
Many husbands and wives and sons and daughters
There were lifeboats for some who were lucky or greedy
To die cold and alone was the fate for the needy
The mast rose high and then sunk down
Just to disappear without a sound
Well the Carpathia, she eventually arrived
But it was much too late so many already had died

Chorus:
Oh Titanic how could you let us down
Oh Titanic you're lying on the bottom of the water just a-waiting to be found
[Harmonica Solo]
Oh Titanic how could you let us down
Oh Titanic you're lying on the bottom of the water just a-waiting to be found

Verse:
The director Cameron on the set of True Lies
As the scene played out he closed his eyes
A vision of his next film was becoming clear
A story of a shipwreck for all to hear
Soon DiCaprio was cast, and Winslet as well
Little did they know that the shoot would be hell
Oh Cameron pushed the limits of CGI
All the special effects really defied the eyes

Chorus:
Oh Titanic how could you let us down
Oh Titanic you're lying on the bottom of the water just a-waiting to be found

Verse:
When the film premiered it blew the roof off the place
All the executives watching there had smiles on their face
It went on to gross more than a movie ever had
For a flick about a shipwreck, man that ain't bad
It was a lock for the Oscar; it just couldn't lose
The Academy never even had to choose
And when Cameron took the prize his head must have swirled
Up at the podium he said, ''I'm the king of the world!''

Chorus:
Oh Titanic how could you let us down
Oh Titanic you're lying on the bottom of the water just a-waiting to be found

Verse:
Then some years later when the timing was right
Cameron dusted off his treasure like we thought he might
No the story hadn't changed, nor either the cast
But options for Cameron still were vast
''See the original had always seemed kind of flat to me''
So the master planned it to be seen in 3D

Chorus:
Oh Titanic how could you let us down
Oh Titanic you're lying on the bottom of the water just a-waiting to be found
Oh waiting to be found
Oh Titanic how could you let us down?
