janemick Req: english language version of 'le Gabier Noir' (17) RE: Lyr Req: english language version of a song 23 Sep 12

Thanks for these.
Yes, Gabier Noir is a song by Michel Tonnere - he often took and translated into French chunks of words and tunes from English shanties. Some work better than others.
At a regular singing session we are often asked for English versions of French sea-songs, hence this query.
I'll take a look at Lowlands away and Roll the Cotton Down
