GUEST,Jerry B Origins: Farewell to Tarwathie--in public domain?? (94* d) RE: Tarwathie 19 Oct 01

Delightful thread, on two levels. Thanks, Sandy, for the reminiscences. When's your book coming out?

I found new interest in the song when I realized it worked better as a (in Sandy's word)"lusty" up-beat number than with the comtemplative spin Judy gave it. The fellow is setting out on the voyage "in hopes to find riches" and I will argue that a strong, perky rendition is closer to how whalers might have sung it.
