Subject: RE: SONG CHALLENGE: Ship in Limbo!
The ship owner's attorney Peter Plum is an old political friend of mine. Maybe I'll give him a call.
A great start!
We're working on that! We don't call our sea music group "Roll & Go" for nothing. We're in the process of refitting our sloop for emergency response as I'm posting.
Here's another start, adapting the old shanty tune "Whup Jamboree":
Twas on the good ship Shamrock,
Anchored in old Casco Bay,
The U.S. marshals boldly boarded her,
And ordered her crew to stay,
And ordered her crew to stay.
The next to speak was our Bosun bold,
Who feared neither fish nor fog ?
"'Tis dreadful to die, but 'tis worse to go dry,
And I move we pipes to grog,
I moves we pipes to grog!"
Fill in between the above verses.
