Subject: RE: songs about building boats/ships?
Two songs by John Tams

Hold Back the Tide; written for The Ship in the 1990 European City of Culture Festival in Glasgow.

When the ship meets the river
Men's hearts sail away

All Clouds the Sky; written for The Good Hope, National Theatre, London 2001-2002

And we ride the flood and trust to glory
Some planks of wood no thicker than your thumb
