Thread Name: Origin: Jack the Sailor / Jack Monroe / Jack-a-Roe
Subject: Jack the Sailor
I am looking for any info on the origins and development of the song "Jack the Sailor", also known as "Jack Monroe", "Love of Polly and Jack Monroe", "Jack-A-Roe", "Jacky Frazier", etc. Is it based on a true story? Who has performed and recorded it through the years?
