The Palatine

I wrote a song about the ‘ghost fire ship’ Palatine that ran aground and burned off the coast of Block Island, RI. I was living on the island at the time and teaching music at the island school when a refrain popped into my head  – “…there’s a fire in the hold.” The song is a fictionalized account of what may have occurred so many years ago.
