Subject: RE: Origins: Rolling Sailor (Eliza Carthy)

There's a copy in Roy Palmer's Oxford Book of Sea Songs (pp147-148 according to the Roud index), or in the later version Boxing The Compass (pp157-158). (I don't know Eliza's version, so I can't see if it's the same version). Other versions of 506 with that title are broadsides in the Madden collection.

There's a version here on Mudcat, which at a quick look, is the version from Palmer, but I haven't time to check in detail: The Rolling Sailor

I haven't time to check it properly at the moment (I have to go and visit someone in hospital), but I'll do it when I come back and if it's different I'll post the Palmer version then.
