GUEST,Chanteyranger Origins: John Kanaka (43) RE: Origins: John Kanaka 15 Jul 20


Our park received an instagram message asking what came first, John Kanaka or Cape Cod Girls, given similarities in some of the verses. This could be a chicken and egg question. Any information on that? My guess is that they are typical of "floating verses," going from chantey to chantey.
