Thread Name: Tune Req: Sea songs about Explorers
Subject: Tune Req: Sea songs about Explorers
A lovely friend & fine singer is teaching music in India. Her 5th grade will have a 6-week unit on explorers and she requests any sea songs I might know and have digitized.

I can tell her that all sea songs are about exploration or at least traveling but I'm stuck on trad material on exploration per se. I can only think of:

Lady Franklin's Lament
Bounty Was a Packet Ship

There must be many, though.
Can you think of any more (on CD)?
