Thread Name: Looking to ID This Song Lyric (Golden Vanity)
Subject: RE: Lyr/Chords Req: Pene, Crazy Eddie, Joe Offer
the thing about this song is that there are literally dozens of versions, with MANY tune variations and differences in what happened to the crew, the ship, etc...even the # of holes bored in it vary from 3 to dozens...It is one of the more famous and common folk songs there is, and so has been 'processed' more that average.

Funny how 'folks' get this single-minded fervor to re-create songs just like their original memories...*grin*.....but it IS fun...
