885. Pay Me My Money Down (Traditional American)

"This work song, also known as \""Pay Me, You Owe Me,\"" was first collected by Lydia Parrish from the Negro stevedores working in the Georgia Sea Islands. Though published in 1942 the melody is much older and has been used in other songs, It was performed by The Weavers at their 1955 Carnegie Hall concerts, and also recorded by The Kingston Trio in 1958. It was the first single released from Bruce Springsteen\'s 2006 album, \""We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions\"" and one of the most popular ..."

The Bosun\'s Alphabet (pp 341-342)

"or The Sailor\'s Alphabet. This sort of \""Alphabet Song,\"" a pattern of some antiquity, has many variants for various trades, such as \""The Fisherman\'s Alphabet,\"" \""The Bargeman\'s Alphabet,\"" and \""The Lumberman\'s Alphabet.\"" There\'s also a very \""dirty\"" version, but frankly it is quite boring. It\'s far more interesting hearing/learning these terms for the things in the life of a given professional. Compared to other variants of the sailors\' version, too, I think this one, learned by Stan Hugill from ..."

Sea Shanties in Moby Dick (1956)

"**If you\'re interested in shanties and their history, please check out the \""Shanties from the Seven Seas\"" project, here. 150+ shanties, and growing: Video Info: The 1956 version of the film Moby Dick contained some great chanteys, led by the famed English folklorist and singer, AL Lloyd. He himself had experience working as a whaler in the Antarctic for 7 months back in the 1930s. This scene contains two chanteys (shanties). The first is \""Blood Red Roses,\"" which is being used ..."

151. Botany Bay (Traditional Australian)

"Ironically, my first exposure to this popular \""Australian\"" ballad is hearing it sung by American folksinger, Burl Ives, on one of my parents\' 78 records. It was probably one of the first songs I ever learnt. It is not really an authentic Australian song as it originally came from the English Music Hall tradition. \""Jim Jones at Botany Bay\"" (which I\'ve already put on YouTube) seems to give a more realistic picture of the convict days. But it\'s a good song anyway...."

Anime Boggards_My Last Night in Baltimore

"This is another anime/boggard crossovers clip featuring the tune \""My Last Night in Baltimore,\"" which was performed by the world famous Poxy Boggards. I hope you enjoy it. Comments are appreciated. Comment positively, however... Or may your worthless and pathetic soul burn and rot in the bowels of Hell for all Eternity!!"

Donkey Riding (pp 117-120) - *with capstan demonstration*

"I captured this video on 14 June 2009 at Mystic Seaport (Connecticut), and afterwards thought it would be perfect to exemplify this chantey, which I had not yet officially recorded for the Stan Hugill/\""Shanties from the Seven Seas\"" series. Not only is the sung rendition first class, it is also being performed in a quasi-authentic environment. *While one of the goals of my project is to ~personally~ learn and perform all the chanteys,\'s OK :) I know this one well and have performed it ..."

Old Swansea Town Once More (A) (pp 323-324)

"This is the sailors\' chantey version (quite different actually) of the Welsh song by the same name. Hugill says that it was especially popular as a homeward bound chantey in Welsh ships of the Copper Ore Trade in the 1870s-80s especially. For the windlass or capstan. (oops, I accidentally metathesized \""Farallones\"") Please check out the whole chanteys project playlist, at"

341. Westering Home (Hugh S. Roberton)

"This Scottish song was written by Hugh S. Roberton (1874 - 1952). The tune is partly based on \""Bonny Strathyre\"", though it seems to be very similar to the well-known jig, \""The Mucking of Geordie\'s Byre\"". cantie = cheerful coothie = pleasant"

Hieland Laddie (pp 115-119)

"From Scottish march to shoreside work song (lumbering, cotton screwing) to sea chantey....! This, with slight changes, is also known as \""Donkey Riding,\"" under which name it\'s seem to have enjoyed a resurgence in Canada\'s maritime provinces in recent years. Learned the lyrics just that same morning, but the tune was already familiar from my days learning the highland pipes! Also found in: Doerflinger 1951 See the whole \""Shanties from the Seven Seas\"" project, here:"

98. Shoals of Herring (Ewan MacColl)

"One of the many great songs Ewan MacColl wrote for the BBC \""radio ballads\"" with Peggy Seeger and Charles Parker. This is the main theme song of \""Singing the Fishing\"", 1960, probably the best of this series of eight documentary programmes. It starred the real-life fisherman, Sam Larner, and this song is based on his life. You can see a playlist of my Ewan MacColl songs here:"

"343. Johnny, I Hardly Knew Ye (Traditional Irish)"

"A traditional Irish anti-recruiting song, obviously related to the popular American song \""When Johnny Comes Marching Home Again\"" (Patrick Gilmore). It is possible that the Irish version actually came first, though no published version is known before 1863, when the latter was written. It seems more likely that the Irish version is a parody of the American one. Certainly the tune does not seem to have been known in Ireland prior to this song. It has been recorded by Joan Baez, The Clancy ..."

156. The Wild Rover (Traditional Irish)

"Though this song is very popular in Ireland, it is possibly of Scottish origin, and written as a temperance song in the early nineteenth century, rather than a drinking song. It has also been known in the USA since 1845. It is a staple of most Irish groups, including The Clancy Brothers, The Dubliners and The Pogues."

240. Hullabaloo Belay (Traditional)

"This old sea shanty was the theme song for a TV series I used to watch during the sixties folk revival, probably called \""Hullabaloo\"" but I\'m not sure about that. The song has been recorded by Burl Ives and Richard Dyer-Bennet among others."

95. All For Me Grog (Traditional Irish)

A popular sea shanty and drinking song. This is the clean version.

High Barbaree (capstan chantey version) (pp 320-321)

"Rarely has this song been categorized as an actual chantey, but as per Hugill\'s inclusive methodology in SHANTIES FROM THE SEVEN SEAS, he includes it among them on the basis of its rare usage as such. The typical entertainment song version has a minor melody. The major mode melody of this worksong version only highliights its distinctiveness. Not surprisingly, however, this melody partially resembles that of \""Lowlands Low\"" (a variant of the old English ballad, \""Golden Vanitee\""): ..."

Razem Bracia Do Lin

"Lyrics: Razem bracia do lin W długim rejsie tu zmorzy nas zuchwale Jeszcze tylko rumu łyk A do domu powrócimy w mig A przed nami jeszcze wiele setek mil Razem bracia do lin Pracy tyle czeka lecz to nic nie szkodzi Jeszcze tylko rumu łyk, a do domu powrócimy w mig Nałapiemy w sieci setki tłustych ryb Już panienki w łóżkach grzeją skarby swe W porcie znowu mordy zalejemy w sztok A przed nami jeszcze tyle setek mil"

159. The Spanish Lady (Traditional Irish)

"A popular Irish pub song that may have its roots in a seventeenth century English song of the same name. \""Napper\"" was the nickname of James Tandy, one of the founders of the \""United Irishmen,\"" the first group of republican revolutionaries in Irish history. Their movement led to the uprising of 1798 and that of 1803, organised by Robert Emmet. This song has been recorded by many groups including The Dubliners, The Wolfe Tones, The Chieftains and Shane MacGowan, founder of the Pogues...."

Tysiące beczek rumu od lockerów aż po dno, I nawet kabla luzu, choćbyś robił nie wiem co. Ref. Sam Neptun śpiewał szanty, po cichu sprzyjał nam, Więc bił rekordy \""I\'m Alone\"", choć groził wciąż Wuj Sam. Na jedną kartę wszystko, jak struna każdy bras, \""Niech diabli porwą Coast Guard\"" - tak mawiał każdy z nas. A dawniej szkuner \""I\'m Alone\"", hen, po łowiskach gnał, Lecz w końcu ryb ..."

180. A Thousand Miles Away (Traditional Australian)

"Banjo Paterson included this in his Old Bush Songs. It is based on an earlier convict song called \""Ten Thousand Miles Away\"", and uses the same tune, but with new lyrics about pastoral Australia. It has been attributed to CA Flower, who was the accountant for the company building the railway line between Mitchell and Roma in Queensland. Notes: The technique for exporting frozen meat was developed in Australia in the late nineteenth century. Nardoo (mersilia) is a clover-like fern that is ..."

32. Jim Jones at Botany Bay (Traditional Australian)

"One of my favourite Australian songs from the convict days. The defiant character portrayed here is far from resigned to his fate, and, as a Victorian, I can relate to his comments about New South Wales! The song probably goes back to about 1830 as it refers to the bushranger Jack Donahue, who ran into the bush to escape the gallows in 1828, but was shot and killed by the mounted police near Campbelltown, NSW in September, 1830. I first heard it sung by English-Australian folksinger, Martyn ..."

"I have uploaded this song again as the original file has become corrupted. This has happened to almost all my videos uploaded between Feb 16 and May 19, 2008 (Videos 378 to 460). This song is believed to have been written in 1919 by Canon Charles O Neill, who was parish priest of Kilcoo and later of Newcastle, to commemorate the Easter Rebellion of 1916. It is loosely based on an old love song, recorded in 1913 by John McCormack, though the tune is traditional. It argues that Irishmen should ..."

"I have uploaded this song again as the original file has become corrupted. This has happened to almost all my videos uploaded between Feb 16 and May 19, 2008 (Videos 378 to 460). This anonymous street ballad goes back to 1798. An Irish playwright, Dion Boucicault (1822-1890), published the song, with an extra verse which seems to contradict the rest of the song by advocating emigration rather than staying to stand up for Ireland. Boucicault himself emigrated to New York. Wearing a shamrock ..."

Anime Shanties_Jamestown Homeward Bound

"After high demand, I finally decided to assemble an anime shanty clip based off of the song \""Jamestown Homeward Bound,\"" which a great deal of people have been waiting for. Just to let you know, this was hastily assembled with old pictorials. However, there are some new ones. Comments are appreciated. However, please have them positive in nature. Do not send any burn comments. Thank you and enjoy!"

325. Ballad of the Kelly Gang (Traditional Australian)

"Ned Kelly was Australia\'s best-known bushranger, and has long been considered a bit of a hero by many, a kind of Australian Robin Hood. This is one of several songs about Ned Kelly and his gang, with particular focus on a famous robbery at Euroa in 1878. It is sung to the tune of \""The Wearing of the Green\"". Folklorist Warren Fahey collected the song in 1973 from 92-year-old Joe Watson in Caringbah, New South Wales."

877. Down By the Riverside (Traditional American)

"This African-American spiritual, sometimes called \""(Ain\'t Gonna) Study War No More,\"" was first recorded by the Fisk Jubilee Singers in 1920. The lyrics are based on verses from the Bible. It was especially popular during the Civil Rights and anti-Vietnam War movements of the 1960s. Variations of the song were reportedly known as early as the Civil War, sung by both whites and blacks. It was recorded by the great Sister Rosetta Tharpe in 1930 and it has been recorded by many artists over the ..."

815. Bound For South Australia (Traditional Australian)

"Also known as \""South Australia\"" this is a sea shanty that was used by the wool traders who worked the clipper ships between Australian ports and London. It was well known as a farewell song, sung at the docks as the big ships were leaving. A version was collected by Laura Smith from sailors in Tyneside and printed in her \""The Music of the Waters\"" in 1888. It has been recorded several times, some notable recordings being by The Seekers (1964), The Pilgrims, The Poxy Boggards, The Clancy ..."

253. The Queensland Drover (Traditional Australian)

"This song, published as early as 1865 in \""The Queenslanders\' New Colonial Fire Song Book\"", is also known as \""The Overlander\"". It was included in Banjo Paterson\'s \""Old Bush Songs\"" and has been recorded by ALLloyd, though this version is closer to that sung by John Manifold. I first heard this song on the landmark Australian folk album \""Moreton Bay and Other Songs, Mainly of Convict Origin\"", which Peter Mann records brought out in 1963, with Martyn Wyndham-Read, Brian Mooney and David Lumsden ..."

489. Liza Jane (Traditional American)

"Not to be confused with Vince Gill\'s song, \""Little Liza Jane\"". There are many versions of this song from the South. Many of them seem to have verses in common with Old Joe Clark. I first heard it sung by Burl Ives on his10\"" LP, \""Folk Songs About the Fair Sex\"" (1953)."

A-Rovin\' (A) - Supplement (p 46)

"Just the first verse of one of the greatest chanteys, this is supplemental to this older recording I made: When I started recording these chanteys, I was treating them examples of a ~general type~, where they would naturally vary according to my interpretation. Multiple versions, when offered by Hugill, were treated as samples to contribute to that interpretation. However, as I have begun to more fully document the work of Hugill and mediate the printed page, I have tried to ..."

Homeward Bound (pp 388-389)

"It\'s a sticky August here in CT. I thought this capstan chantey, in a minor key, would be best set at a slower tempo -- there seems to have been an association between hot weather, slow speed, and minor key chanteys. It appears to be a chantey inspired by the \""Outward and Homeward Bound\"" forebitter: The \""Landlord\"" in that old navy ballad has been turned into the \""Madame\"" in the hands of the rough Cape Horner sailors! Stan Hugill learned it from Paddy Griffiths, who associated ..."

916. She\'ll Be Coming \'Round the Mountain (Traditional American) - Four Variations

"This song, also known simply as \""Coming \'Round the Mountain\"", is often considered to be a children\'s song. The first printed version of the song appeared in Carl Sandburg\'s \""The American Songbag\"" (1927), but it probably goes back to the late 1800s. The song was based on the old Negro spiritual, \""When the Chariot Comes\"" and spread through Appalachia with the now familiar lyrics, but retaining the call-response structure, and was later sung by railroad work gangs in the Midwest. My video here ..."

914. Little Brown Jug (Joseph Winner)

"Joseph Eastburn Winner wrote this drinking song in 1869. Like a lot of songs about alcohol, it became popular again during the Prohibition era, and was a hit for Glenn Miller and his band in 1939. Though the song is about the hard life of an alcoholic couple it is sung to a cheerful melody."

913. Queen of Argyll (Andy Stewart)

"Andy M. Stewart, born in 1952, is a Scottish singer songwriter, who was the lead singer of the band, Silly Wizard. Several of his songs have become folk standards, including \""The Ramblin\' Rover\"", \""Golden, Golden\"", \""The Valley of Strathmore\"" and, of course, this song, \""Queen of Argyll\"". This song was requested by hultonclint. Hope you like it, Ranzo!"

Camptown Races

"\""Songs my father taught me to love\"" Lew Dite with his banjo uke. THE WORDS & CHORDS TO THIS SONG AT"

Sacramento (pp 95-101)

"This outward bound capstan chantey is recognizable as a similar tune + chorus to \""Camptown Races.\"" The jury is out as to whether the chantey or the Stephen Foster song came first, with both emerging around the same time after the California Gold Rush. I\'m inclined to believe the popular minstrel song came first, inspiring adaptations and parodies. Even before the chantey, this over-land version which sing about the gold rush may have come in: I\'m also inclined ..."

"Roll, Alabama, Roll (pp 126-127)"

"Both the tune and lyrics that Hugill gives for this halyard chantey are significantly different from available heard/recorded version. I decided to give him the benefit of the doubt and try it out, without conforming much to the current versions. In my humble opinion, these current versions are aesthetically better songs, but for the sake of it I tried out Hugill\'s lesser but still good version. The Alabama was a Confederate ship during the American Civil War that was ridiculously successful ..."

912. Camptown Races (Stephen Foster)
Sally Brown (Roll \'n\' Go) (pp 128-132)

"With scenes from Kingston Harbour, from Kingston and Port Royal. This capstan chantey is presumed to come from Jamaica. Sally Brown must have become a folkloric character beyond chanteys there, since Cuban-born Jamaican singer Laurel Aitken sang a different song about \""Sally Brown\"" in a ska style. Interesting how many modern versions of this have sort of neutralized it, removing racial or ethnic markers. Too bad this also removes the Jamaica setting and some of the depth of meaning of what ..."

So Early in the Morning (B) (p 53)

"Here\'s a melodic variant version of the chantey \""The Sailor Likes His Bottle-O\"" for the pumps, as learned from Stan Hugill from a Nova Scotian seaman. \""According to my informant this shanty was one in which improvisation was the thing, anything and everything a sailor was likely to \'love\' was brought in by a versatile shantyman.\"" Having given some of the more conventional lyrics in my interpretation of version \'A\',...\'s a few shout outs to a few little, more personal ..."

917. Battle Hymn of the Republic (Julia Ward Howe)

"This popular tune was written around 1855 by William Steffe. The song itself began as a gospel song called \""Canaan\'s Happy Shore\"" or \""Brothers, Will You Meet Me?\"" but as the tune became known around the US it was set to many different lyrics. The most popular of these was a song called \""John Brown\'s Body,\"" written by Thomas Bishop, a soldier from Vermont in the Massachusetts Infantry, in about 1860. The original words were apparently not about John Brown, the abolitionist, but referred to a ..."

919. When the Saints Go Marching In (Traditional American)

"This song began as a gospel hymn called \""When the Saints are Marching In\"", written by Katherine Purvis in 1896, with music by James Milton Black. It was changed to its present form in 1927, and soon became a jazz staple. It was traditionally used as a funeral march in New Orleans, where it woud be played as a slow dirge as the coffin was carried to the cemetery, and then as an upbeat \""Dixieland\""-style tune on the way back. The New Orleans football team named themselves the Saints, after the ..."
