Subject: 'On Board Of A Man-of-war'
I have the wonderful new Bellamy 3-CD from Camsco records. I think it will take me a long time to go through it but for now, he does one called "The Death Of Nelson."

I feel sure this is a version of "On Board Of A Man-of-war" and find to my dismay that I can't find any text or tune for the latter in my own collection, in DT or other sites. I can only remember the single phrase. At DT, it's only circumstantially referred to as having the same tune as: this message (click) - which is a reference to "A STITCH IN TIME." That song is unharvested and has no tune.

Can any please advise if the two are versions of the same song and of a text for "On Board Of A Man-of-war?"

I thank you.
