Thread Name: Origins: The Cruel Ship's Captain (Broadside?)
Subject: Origins: The Cruel Ship's Captain (Broadside?)
The liner notes of A.L Lloyd's Leviathan recording mention this song having broadside origins, (I don't actually have the notes, but it was mentioned in another thread), and I am wondering if anyone knows or has access to the original broadside text, before it was folk processed into the four common, chilling verses (Lloyd sings three).
