Thread Name: Origins: Admiral Benbow
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Admiral Benbow lyrics
In the 60's Mick Waterson was singing a version beginning "We sailed to Carthaginia (Cartagena?) and thence to Fayal, where we watered our ship me boys and then we sailed on" This makes better geographic sense than "Virginia" and surely predates the Tabor/Swan Arcade version.
