Subject: RE: Origins: Hoodah Day Shanty/Banks of the Sacramento
"I asked her if she'd take a trip,
A-down the DOCKS to see a ship "
Those opening lines of the Shanty, from the original post by LESLEY N. indicate that there are/were Docks in Sacramento. Can somebody say what kind of Docks are being referred to, were they really for loading and unloading ships or just lighters ?
