Hi there - I'm looking for the lyrics and origins of a couple of Shanties. Below are extracts from each of them:
Blow today and blow tomorrow
Heave away boys, haul away boys
Haul on the halliard stamp and go
Heave yer ho boys
Let her go boys
Swing her landward and haul together
Let her go boys
Sailing homeward to Dingle Bay (or something like that ;-)

I'd be really greatful if anyone knows either of these songs, I'm trying to collect some new ones to introduce to the shanty fraternity in Auckland. Cheers F
PS I bet they're on digitrad somewhere, I have looked but can't find.
