Dead Horse Mystery Chanty (1917) (30) RE: Mystery Chanty (1917) 27 Jul 12

"I didn't say "muck about with" but is that your attitude toward anyone now making changes in a collected shanty?"
No, you didnt say 'muck about with' but that is certainly the implication.
If you intend to 'work on that last line' of an unconnected four line verse to make it fit any one of a hundred existing shanties, then that IS my attitude.
If any of you lubbers try to get away with 'finding a lost verse' of any well known shanty I shall hunt you down and nail your hides to the lamproom door, you see if I dont :-)
