Thread Name: Origins: Golden Vanity Variants
Subject: RE: Golden Vanity Variants
Thanks for posting my link, Mr.Happy! That one came straight from Stan Hugill's book; no oral/aural learning involved on my part.

I know we are generally talking about Golden Vanity as a text, but it is interesting as well how many chanteys (that happens to be the world I'm working in) start with the same melodic figure. "High Barbaree: and "Derby Ram" (again, both in their chantey forms) are two that come to mind.
