|GUEST,Chanteyranger||Origins: John Kanaka (51* d)||RE: Origins: John Kanaka||15 Jul 20|
Our park received an instagram message asking what came first, John Kanaka or Cape Cod Girls, given similarities in some of the verses. This could be a chicken and egg question. Any information on that? My guess is that they are typical of "floating verses," going from chantey to chantey.
