Modern print editions eg: High Barbaree have sometimes attributed to Charles Dibdin. (see the sample image).
I too can see nothing in the Dibdin collections except for the Blow High, Blow Low title that seems related.
Bronson in a footnote to his introduction to George Aloe... (vol IV) reaches the same conclusion - that Shay was mistaken.
