Wild Goose shanty is in Hugill first published 1961
a different song to Reuben Ranzo ~ with negroe connections ~ and huckleberry hunting

Wm Main Doerflinger book Shanty men and Shanty boys ~ Songs of the Sailor and Lumberman 1951 copyright has original version of Reuben Ranzo as he collected it I suspect ~ also in Hugill with umpteen collected verses noted
