Ship of Stone – Don Simpson

“Ship of Stone,” by Don Simpson, actually one of the best songs ever written and I will fight you, sung by an unknown vocalist at the 1986 Worldcon.
Hear it with Steve Savitzky on guitar and vocals and Callie Hills on flute here, recorded at Baycon 2006.
LYRICS AND CHORDS HERE!  You have no idea how long it took me to find these chords; I’m so happy now.

  1. The singer on the cassette is almost certainly Kathy Mar. I have heard her sing Filk many times and her voice is quite distinctive.

  2. A quick search seems to indicate the the vocalist is Kathy Mar, who is hardly “unknown”, and is know for doing this song at various performances. The song is still going strong, as Leslie Fish did it in concert at BucConeer, the 56th WorldCon in 1998.
