They say he didn't have an enemy
His was a greatness to behold
He was the last surviving
progeny
The last one on this side of
the world
He measured a half mile from
tip to tail
Silver and black with powerful
fins
They say he could split a
mountain in two
That's how we got the Grand
Canyon
Last great American whale
Last great American whale
Last great American whale
Last great American whale
Some say they saw him at the
Great Lakes
Some say they saw him off of
Florida
My mother said she saw him in
Chinatown
But you can't always trust your
mother
Off the Carolinas the sun
shines brightly in the day
The lighthouse glows ghostly
there at night
The chief of a local tribe had
killed a racist mayor's son
And he'd been on death row
since 1958
The mayor's kid was a rowdy pig
Spit on Indians and lots worse
The old chief buried a hatchet
in his head
Life compared to death for him
seemed worse
The tribal brothers gathered in
the lighthouse to sing
And tried to conjure up a storm
or rain
