Thread Name: From SF to Sydney - 1853 Shanties Sung?
Subject: RE: From SF to Sydney - 1853 Shanties Sung?
The route would only be relevant if the shantyman picked up or composed a new song or some verses while in San Francisco or Sydney.
Banks of the Sacramento (gold rush inspired)
Bound to California (gold rush inspired)
The 'Frisco Ship
Bound to California
Bound to Australia
Otherwise the shantyman would sing anything he knew that was appropriate for the job being done.
