Hi, radriano and Barry -

You can also find the melody in Hugill's Shanties From The Seven Seas, pg. 260-261 in the paperback edition. The recording of it I know of is on a CD of Shay Black singing it at a French sea music festival. The CD is called "Les Musiques De La Fete: Brest '92." There are a few small differences in melody between Hugill's version and the way Shay sings it. p.s. to Barry - I tried your e mail address but it bounced back. My computer told me it lacked a domain name, the bastard.
