BSeed, your right about the Canal, now that you've joged my memory , I think Debby's interest I think in the song came from one of her ancestors made the journey on foot across the Isthmus to finish off the trip by boat, I think I recall her saying that the boat met it's end & he was rescued & continued on to San Francisco.
