Subject: RE: Ship Margaret Evans, songs
Judy Collins' version (c. her) is clearly derivitive:

Well the smartest clipper you could find
Heave away haul away
Is the Margaret Evans on the Black Ball Line
Clear away the track and let the bullgine run.

Tell me now are you most done?
Heave away haul away
Every day we're closer to home
Clear away the track and let the bullgine run.

Well tell me now are you bound to go
Heave away Haul away
Off to Greenland where there's ice and snow
Clear away the track and let the bullgine run

Tell me now are you bound to sail
Heave away Haul away
Off to Greenland to catch the whale
Clear away the track and let the bullgine run

Oh I though I heard my captain say
Heave away haul away
In another week we'll get more pay
Clear away the track and let the bullgine run.
Tell me now are you most done?
Heave away haul away
Every day we're closer to home
Clear away the track and let the bullgine run.

Oh the smartest clipper you could find
Heave away haul away
Is the Margaret Evans on the Black Ball Line
Clear away the track and let the bullgine run.
