Subject: RE: Sea Chanteys All Over The News
The song first appeared in a 1972 book of NZ songs. The Wellers were actually from an Australian whaling company. Half the songs are from journals and newspapers and the other half look as though they have been cobbled together during the revival using bits and pieces and tunes of well-known songs. Some good songs in there though all the same. Where 'Davy Lowston' first appeared.

Yes, Dick, YOU have been trolled which is what Jeri was saying.
