The Lyrics

Katie Casey was very sad.
Lost the husband that she once had.
Just to mourn for the man who died
thought she tried, Katie cried.

On a Monday in November
came the day, made a widow of her.
The ship did go, but Ms. Kate, oh no
reach homeport, it would not do.

Wreck of Edmund Fitzgerald.
Wreck of freighter of ore.
Buying a candle, and suit of black.
I don't think it will ever get back.
For we cry, cry, cry in the homeport.
It won't come back, that's a shame.
For it's twenty-nine men that died
on that ship of fame.

Didn't find a Casey on the crew roster. But still a good parody, with the extra lines. So many older songs had introductory verses that get omitted in later recordings and performances. "Buy a candle and suit of black" is a good line. "Twenty-nine" for "One, two, three strikes" fits well to the original.
