Thread Name: Lyr Req: Saxby Gale (from Burl Ives)
Subject: Lyric help Burl Ives song
Trying to help a friend find the lyrics to an old Burl Ives tune: The Saxby Gale. That may not be the true name of the sea shanty but the Saxby Gale happened in late 1800's in the Maritimes. 70 some men lost their lives by ignoring warnings of the gale. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
