Subject: RE: From SF to Sydney - 1853 Shanties Sung?
Chaun fine my deary hunney, here are the rest of the chanties on my original list, which include "stamp 'n go", "hand over hand", and "short haul", along with Mr. Doyle's boots.

"Drunken Sailor" [stamp 'n go/hand over hand]
"Hieland Laddie" c [stamp 'n go]
"John Dameray" / "Johnny Come Down The Backstay" [stamp 'n go]
"Johnny, Come Along" [stamp 'n go]
"Rise Me Up from Down Below" [stamp 'n go]

"Boney" / "John Francois" [short haul & halyards]
"Haul Away, Joe" [short haul]
"Haul The Bowline" [short haul]
"Johnny Boker" [short haul]

"Paddy Doyle"

And a growing list of possible "one pull" chanties, which are like "short haul" chanties, but used for a "long haul" job, and very labor intensive:

"Cheerily Men"
       "Little Sally Racket" / "Haul 'er Away" / "Nancy FaNana"
['Hill and Gully Rider"]
"Grog Time of Day"
"Do(oldle) Let Me Go"
"Johnny Bowker" (same as above)
