There's a sea chanty that's called either Sail on Bill McCoy, or just Bill McCoy that's about rum running, but I don't know the whole thing, only the chorus. Maybe someone else on the Mudcat does;

Sail on Bill McCoy, Sail on Erasthusa/ Running the rum from Nassau town/ To the mouth of New York Bay/

Good hunting, Catfeet
