describes the horrific plane crash and fire that took 23 of 46 passengerís lives, including Stan on June 2, 1983.
I first learned 45 years and Field Behind the Plow back in 1982, the year I got married. Still sing it with my wife now, almost 45 years later.
Iím currently reading ďNight GuardĒ by Stanís brother Garnet Rogers. Itís about their time together, as brothers and as touring musicians.

Hi George,

Thank you for that article on the DC-9 fire on the ground in Cincinnati. It's a really heart breaking story. I knew that was how Stan Rogers died, but this article was really quite a bit more detailed than anything I head read before. What a terrible shame.

My wife and I used to sing together, for a while professionally. We are probably a little older than you as we got married in 1970. We've been married now for 53 years.

Thanks so much for your knowledgeable response here. It's all very sobering.

- Glenn

Thank you Bill!

How nice of you to take time to listen and comment! Much appreciated.

Yes, this song and artist were new to me, too. I don't know how I missed Stan Rogers' music or his life story.

I hope all is well for you Bill!

- Glenn

Thanks Dave,

I appreciate your listening and taking time to comment here.

Yes, I had never even heard of Stan Rogers until my grandson mentioned his music.

I hope all is well for you, Dave.

This is quite a dramatic song about the dangers of commercial shipping on the Great Lakes in North America from the white squall, a meteorological phenomenon of a sudden violent gale out on the lakes generated in the midst of a very warm calm.

I used a standard tuned guitar (it shows up on the left) and a Nashville high-strung guitar (which shows up on the right) for this song and also added some single note lines for the instrumental sections to get close to the sound that Stan Rogers achieved in the studio. Stan Rogers' music was well loved in Canada, his home. He was born a year later than I was, but died young at age 33 in a tragic loss.

If you are interested in either the chords or lyrics here is a link: https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/tab...chords-1744854 Stan Rogers played this song with a capo on the 2nd fret; I played it with capo on the 4th fret to suit my voice a little better.

By way of background, I grew up on the southern edge of Lake Erie just west of Cleveland, OH. So I grew up watching the huge ore boats and lake freighters going back and forth on the lake. The town Wiarton referenced in the chorus of the song is in Ontario on the east side of Lake Huron, straight north of where I grew up. My mother's uncles (my grand uncles) were all engineers on the ore boats of the Great Lakes. When Stan Rogers referred to "the Sault" in the first and last verses of the song, he was referring to Sault Ste. Marie in Michigan, along the water passage between Lake Huron and Lake Superior.

I think this is a beautifully crafted song. I hope you like this; thanks for listening.

Hi Steve,

No, I have not seen the movie. Is it good? I'm always on the watch for a good movie.

Thanks Glenn,

The movie is epic - I think - although I remember it fondly from my younger years! I sound like an old man
Great one to watch with sons, daughters etc

There was a year (quite a while ago) when I was under-employed. My two theme songs that year were Stan Rogers's "Mary Ellen Carter" and Rev. Gary Davis's "I'll Be All Right". (Two tunes I ought to learn... hmmm... )

Hi Dave,

I have listened to the "Mary Ellen Carter" song. I will go check out Rev. Gary Davis's "I'll Be All Right". Thanks for the feedback! Be well out there!
