"...an epic work of words and music about the R.101
airship disaster of 1930, written in a new form of narrative
rock music called songstory." I have a copy of this and it's
really a top-flight production. Well worth the listen!

The song is on "Closing
the Distance" by Sally Rogers and Claudia Schmidt - Flying
Fish Records, 1304 W. Schubert, Chicago, Ill 60614. Check the
folk section of your record store, or write Flying Fish. They
show the authors as George Evans and Ren Shields (whoever they
are), and state that "The Lost World Stringband in East Lansing
used to perform this song and it always made me waltz and feel
good (the two are synonymous). But it was never long enough
because they only knew one verse! Bits and pieces of the song
haunted me for years until one day I was driving through Cleveland
with Dick Swain, who began spontaneously singing a second verse!"
The song is a waltz with a somewhat strange sound, because
Claudia Schmidt uses it to showcase the "pianolin," a strange
hybrid of the autoharp and the violin with a kind of scratchy
bowed-instrument sound. Here are the lyrics (from memory --
it's too early to play the song, everyone is sleeping here,
but I think it's accurate).
Come Take a Trip in my Airship
by George Evans and Ren Shields
I once loved a sailor. Once a sailor loved me.
was not a sailor who sailed on the wide blue sea.
in an airship -- sailed like a bird on the wing
and every Friday at midnight, he would come to my window
Come take a trip in my airship
Come sail away to the stars
We'll travel to Venus
We'll sail away to Mars
No one will see as we're kissing
No one will know as we swoon
So come take a trip in my airship,
and we'll visit the man in the moon
One night while sailing away from the crowds
we passed through the milky-white way
While idly drifting watching the clouds
he asked if I'd name the day
Just by the dipper I gave him my heart
The sun shone on our honeymoon
We swore to each other we never would part,
and to teach all the babies this tune
