Lighter Origin: Blow Ye Winds in the Morning (9) RE: Origin:Blow Ye Winds in the Morning 20 Jun 21

Harper's Magazine (April, 1916), p. 654:

"It was an old chantey:

"For now we're in the Gulf Stream,
   An' the wind begins ter blow.
Lay aloft, take in yer tops'ls,
   Or it's overboard yer go!

"Then after each verse came softly the refrain:

"For it's blow ye winds aloft!
   An' it's blow ye winds below!
An' it's clear away yer running gear,
   An' it's blow, blow, blow!

Heard an board the schooner "Kitty A." in 1915.
