Thread Name: Sailors' Songs or Chanties- Songbook Index
Subject: RE: Sailors' Songs or Chanties- Index
Are these the books that sailors took to sea with them, so as to have one hand on the rope and the other free for turning the pages while singing for Mrs Colchord et al ? :-)
If so, I DO hope they had a good sense of humour (note: humour, not humor. Shanty, not chanty.)
Nuff said?
