The Lyrics

Galveston, oh Galveston
Most evacuated early
Long before the winds got whirly
Or the surge begun
Got out of Galveston

Galveston, oh Galveston
Comin' back the ban is liftin'
For survival dreams now siftin'
After Ike's web spun
Not much left of Galveston

Misty balmy breezes
Stir the gulf waves
In the now, quiet peaceful sea
Once again, as it used to be
Soaring seagulls,
And sand and sun..

Galveston, oh Galveston
Thank God most were spared from dyin'
Though many reasons, still, for cryin'
Sticks and stones and mem'ries lyin'
Damage done..
In the ruins of Galveston

In the ruins of Galveston

sad and accurate....matched the tone of the OS well

Pretty imagery, and the alliteration was a nice touch. Outdoes the storm on the Saffir-Simpson scale -- Category 5.
