Trad Tuesday - And if Venice is Sinking by Spirit of the West

And if Venice is Sinking is not a traditional tune nor is is particularly Celtic. The band, Spirit of the West, is a Canadian folk-rock band with Celtic influences. But I love this song and its tribute to Venice and the art and culture that would be lost if Venice floods. And since it's my blog I decided that is was the song I would share with you today.

From the chorus:  Venice is sinking, I'm going under
'Cause beauty's religion and it's christened me with wonder
