Verse

CIt was spring of 189F0 Thomas LiAmvingston had built a new mGachine CAnd he planned to see the Fworld Flying eAmverywhere to places yet unsGeen When the dAmay to set sail finally arrived He hFugged his son and he kissed his wife And sCet off on the journey through the skGy And the fAmirst few months went just as planned TheFy were leaving Rome for Amsterdam When a pirate vCessel caught them by surpriGse

Pre-chorus

Well, pAmanic broke out EOn that ship CFannons fired and bCullets ripped Though TAmhomas stood firm EIn the fight, He Ffeared he'd have to wGrite:

Chorus

C"Dear Michelle, I won't be coEming home I'm driAmfting out across the clouds InFto the great unknown C"There's no way I'll ever Emake it back It's vAmast out here, and I have veered So Fvery far off track "Please look after Jim And take good care of him Oh, Michelle, I know you will raise him well "I wish I could return But now you'll have to learn To carry on when your family man is gone" As the pirates waged their war Thomas tried to fight and counter their attacks But the fiends had them outnumbered And a gunman shot his first mate in the back Well they picked off his men, one by one There was nothing they could do, and there was nowhere to run And it wouldn't be long 'til the scoundrels shot them all Then with one final blast that shook the ship Thomas Livingston's vessel took a critical hit And down his mighty craft began to fall And Thomas then thought of his miss He couldn't let her know he went down like this He wrote a letter to Michelle, As down his airship fell: "Dear Michelle, I won't be coming home I'm drifting out across the clouds Into the great unknown "There's no way I'll ever make it back It's vast out here, and I have veered So very far off track "Please look after Jim And take good care of him Oh Michelle, I know you will raise him well "I wish I could return But now you'll have to learn To carry on when your family man is gone "Please look after Jim And take good care of him Oh Michelle, I know you will raise him well "I wish I could return But now you'll have to learn To carry on when your family man is gone"
