Jim, thanks so much for posting your grandfather's lyrics. Roughly when did he learn them?

They are extremely similar to MacColl's, the biggest difference being the "blind scouse pie."

Correction: Topic's "Leviathan" album is not the same as Riverside's "There She Blows"/"Whaling Ballads," which Hugill seems to have overlooked.

MacColl and Seeger aren't on it, but Martin Carthy and other future stars are.
