Thread Name: Origin: Bonny Ship the Diamond
Subject: Bonny Ship the Diamond source?
I seem to recollect that AL Lloyd said somewhere he had collected this song in 1938, possibly from a sailor on the Southern Empress; but I can't track down the reference.
No source mentioned in the notes to Leviathan, for example. Has anyone come across this?
