Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Cliffs of Baccalieu (from Stan Rogers)
Sang this song on the Mudcat singaround on Monday. It has always fascinated me. A friend of mine who is a long distance sailor heard this song and said, "They were lucky! Not an easy thing to do!" I was looking on the net for information one time and found a lovely photo of fishermen of the time on board their boat all dressed up in flat caps and jackets and trousers! I think there was a tie there too somewhere. Clearly professional fishermen.
