The Sinking Of The Reuben James" occupies, without presupposition or presumption, a unique position in, say, a pantheon-like structure of music history, honoring in efect the good (and bad) common man - rich to poor and to poor to rich - everywhere. And the line in the second verse - "Did you have a friend on the good Reuben James" - appears to be spiritually figurative as well as factual.

Have you heard of a ship called the good Reuben James. Manned by hard working men both of honor and fame. but tonight she's in her grave on the bottom of the sea. Tell me: what were their names? Tell me: what were their names? Did you have a friend on the good Reuben James? What were their names? Tell me: what were their names? Did you have a friend on the good Reuben James? One hundred men were drowned in that dark watery grave. When that good ship went down only 44 were saved.
Now tonight there are lights in our country so bright In the farms and in the cities they're telling of the fight And now our mighty battleships will steam the bounding main And remember the name of that good Reuben James.
