Joe and the Pepe’

We had the Red Tide

the summer of seventy five

All the shrimpers went away

but sailor Joe stayed behind

 

Joe cursed the Red Tide

Stayed drunk on Muscadine

Until one day the Pepe’ set sail

never to be seen again

 

From that day till this

The Old timers tell tales

Of a ghost ship, the Pepe’

With its bright red sail
