Bill McCoy can be gotten from Jan Christensen, the author, contact me if you are still interested and I will pass him your e-dress.

ps, the chorus goes:

Sail on, Bill McCoy,
Sail on, Arethusa,
Runnin' the rum from Nassau town
To the mouth of New York Bay.

It's the real McCoy.

If you are New York bound, the next chantey sing in New York will be on June 26 at Seamen's Church Institute, Water Street, Manhatten.
