High Barbaree.

First heard sung by Walt Robertson, learned it from The Burl Ives Song Book.

On the performance stage at the Hec Edmondson Pavilion at the University of Washington during a citywide hobby fair. On stage with Walt Robertson and Bob Nelson.

Spring of 1953.

I'll be 80 in June.

Yup. Still sing it.
