Thread Name: Sailors' Songs or Chanties- Songbook Index
Subject: RE: Sailors' Songs or Chanties- Songbook Index
King's Book of Chanties, Oliver Dotson Co. (1918) is mentioned above, but it doesn't look like anyone's transcribed the index, so here it is, from my copy. I should say that this is just a small pamphlet, and although the titles of these chanteys are familiar, many of the verses are quite different from those currently sung (at least around here - grin). I've kept King's spellings.
