"(50) SAILORS SONGS OR 'CHANTIES'"
1887 (1st. Ed.)
Frederick J. Davis R. N. R. (Late Captain in the Mercantile Marine), with music by Ferris Tozer. Boosey & Co., Ltd., London, 3rd. Ed.

Anchor Songs

* (Not chanteys, but popular on the seas)

It seemed to me that indexes to the chanteys in the older books, or chanteys definitely collected before 1900, might be of some value.
Captain Davis gives some extended versions, and some quite different from those usually heard. I will post those for which there are requests.

I will add to this Index, and hope others will do the same.

My complete photocopy of Davis & Tozer's First Ed. (London: Boosey & Co., [1886]) contains only 24 songs.

1. Sally Brown
2. Away for Rio
3. We're All Bound to Go
4. The Wide Missouri
5. Leave Her, Johnnie
6. Can't You Dance a Polka?
7. The Black Ball Line
8. Hoodah Day
9. Homeward Bound
10. Whiskey for My Johnnie
11. Reuben Ranzo
12. Blow Boys, Blow
13. Blow the Man Down
14. Tom's Gone to Ilo
15. Hanging Johnnie
16. Haul Away Jo'
17. Haul the Bowlin'
18. Paddy Doyle's Boots
19. A-Roving
20. Storm Along
21. Mobile Bay
22. Salt Horse
23. The Dead Horse
24. Eight Bells

The songs are not grouped into categories as in Q's copy, which must be of the Third Edition (1906). Writers for some reason (possibly wishful thinking) have commonly misdated this very much expanded edition to "ca1888."

I erred in referring the edition of 50 songs to the 1887 edition.

To the First Edition were added 16 more, bringing "the number up to forty." Ten more were added for the Third Edition. No dates were given in the Third Edition.
A Preface to the Revised Edition by W. K. Hill, commenting on various publications of chanteys, posits the question, "Is it not rather his duty to set down for permanent record only what he believes to have been the true original of the chanties in the mouths of their best exponents? The Editors of this collection, which has been revised for this new issue, worked upon the latter conception. Therefore those who render these chanties may be fairly sure that, as far as can be ascertained, they are singing the real songs of the sea in their original purity and force."

To add to the confusion, my photocopy of a copy of the "Third Edition," which I believe to be complete, does not include the Preface by W. K. Hill. Though the book contains fifty songs, the word "Fifty" or number "50" does not appear on the title page. Nor do I see the words "Revised Edition" anywhere.

My suspicion is that the "Revised Edition" is identical to the third except for the addition of Hill's Preface.

The Second Edition, with forty songs, is dated by World Cat firmly to 1888. The date of the First, which does not appear on the book, is given as "1886?" and what must be presumed as the Third as "1906?" A further edition, otherwise undescribed but presumably Q's, is dated to "191-?"

The "1888" date for the Second Edition appears to be certain, but the correct date for the First and Third and "Revised" are less so.

Q's copy appears to have added the words "Late Captain in the Mercantile Marine" to the title-page description of "Frederick J. Davis, R.N.R." on the Third.

Davis and Tozer also produced a little-known collection of original songs called _Oceanus; or Echoes from Afloat_ (London: Marriot & Williams). The British Library Catalogue dates this as "1914?"

In the Third Edition I have, the number "50" appears on the cover.
It does not appear in the title page, which is "Sailors' Songs or Chanties," and which bears the label "Revised Edition" at the top of the page.
The preface to the Third Edition (not the revised) says "The demand for a third edition, within a short time after the appearance of the second, has induced the Authors to add ten more Songs to the previous collection." This statement suggests that it appeared soon after the Second, possibly before the "1906" suggested above.

The ten additional songs in the Third Edition are credited to two sources-
Laura A. Smith, 1888 (date of 1st. Ed.), "The Music of the Waters, A Collection of Sailors' Chanties, or Working Songs of the Sea, of All Maritime Nations. Boatmen's, Fisherman's. and Rowing Songs, and Water Legends." Kegan Paul, Trench & Co.
and "Those officers of the Royal Navy and Mercantile Marine who have assisted them [the editors] in obtaining airs of "Chanties" which otherwise they could not have secured."

If a Second Edition with 40 songs is available, it could be checked against the 50 in the Third Edition to identify the 10 songs added from Laura Smith and other sources.

An edition, presumably the first, was reviewed in the "Saturday Review" (London) for Aug. 22, 1887. This is most consistent with actual publication in 1887.

World Cat does not seem to list an accessible copy of the Second Edition.

I see now that Q's "Revised Ed." (for clarity, the "final edition") includes a "Simplified Version" of "A-Roving" (37b) that does not appear in the Third Ed. Q, can you post?

Thanks, Q.

Something else to note is that my Third Ed. intro acknowledges Smith for "airs" rather than words. Since Davis & Tozer could not have known the words of such songs without also knowing the airs, should we suppose that they themselves invented the words printed with those airs?

To make it all the more confusing, Bristol shantyman Stanley Slade, as genuine an article as Stan Hugill and said to be a stickler for authenticity, sang shanties for Peter Kennedy in 1950 that were identical to versions in Davis & Tozer. I don't see how that could be coincidental.

I now believe, after going through several book lists and biblios., that the 'Third' with '50' on the cover (not title page), 'Revised' with preface by W. K. Hill, was the 1906 edition. I consider the authors, and the Boosey editors, to be honest. The 'airs' obtained are explained in the 1906 (?) preface- Here is the complete Third Ed. preface from the edition with '50' on the cover:

"The demand for a third edition, within a short time after the appearance of the second, has induced the authors to add ten more songs to the previous collection.
"The Authors desire to express their sincere thanks to Miss Laura A. Smith- the talented authoress of "British War Songs, &c., &c., - for her kind permission to use some of the airs from her well-known book, "The Music of the Waters,"* and also to those officers of the Royal Navy and Mercantile marine who have assisted them in obtaining airs of "Chanties" which otherwise they could not have secured."
*THose who wish to study the subject of "Chanties" will find in this book the fullest information."

Q, my copy is unquestionably at least the Third Edition because it includes prefaces to three editions as well as fifty, not forty, songs. If yours contains an additional version of "A-Roving" plus another preface by Hill, it must be a later edition. Such an edition exists and is dated by World Cat to "191-?"

Why Boosey published it as "Revised" rather than "Fourth" I can't imagine.

A more significant issue, however, is the authenticity of the shanty words. Hugill himself suggests that some of them, notably those to "Can't You Dance a Polka?" were written by Davis & Tozer. He thought they were too coy and sentimental to have been acceptable to the British sailors he knew in the 1920s, many of whom had been at sea for more than twenty years.

I'll say it again: Davis & Tozer credit Smith and the ships' officers for "airs" (melodies) and "airs of 'Chanties'" not "words" or complete "songs." And I have to believe that the shanties sung by Stanley Slade in 1950 came directly out of Davis & Tozer - why, I don't know. Were these the words he sang at sea around 1900? I don't know that either.

I recently found an old LP of Oscar Brand sea shanties in my basement storage. I remember liking it because the songs were performed in a straightforward manner, with acoustic instruments and without excessive "production." "Johnny Came Down to Hilo," "The Stormy Winds do Blow," "Captain Kidd" and several other classic "chanties"
are featured on this one. By the way, I have seen both "chanty" and "shanty" used by various writers and performers over the years, though I always favored the former as more historically correct. Any disputants?

From: SONGS OF SEA LABOUR (CHANTIES)by Frank Bullen, F.R.G.S., and W.F. Arnold, with an appreciation by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. London: Swan & Co. 1914.

Two Notes: Notice the use of the "ch" spelling of "chanties" in a British publication. I've always thought that it was more common to use "sh" in the U.K.

Also note that this book contains very little commentary on the chanteys, really only about 13 pages. The music is transcribed by Arnold from Bullen's singing, and the texts are only the first verse of each song, since Bullen claims that the words were usually extemporaneous and that a fixed text would be counter to the tradition.

What, Brett, you can't sing all these songs? Still, wouldn't it be fun to try! And Guam might just be the place for the international, hell, the intergalactic demonstration of who was the bestest of the best for execution!

Why not write a grant so we can all afford to compete?

You know how your mind works when you are bored. I was driving to work today and thinking about this. It would be easy to set up. We would need to agree to an honor code. Someone else, other than the singer, would have to post the progress. Maybe there could be a singoff at the Getaway.

I'd be happy to host it here but you all have to pay your own way. Charley, you're the expert on writing grants. Get busy.

Are these the books that sailors took to sea with them, so as to have one hand on the rope and the other free for turning the pages while singing for Mrs Colchord et al ? :-)
If so, I DO hope they had a good sense of humour (note: humour, not humor. Shanty, not chanty.)
Nuff said?

All sorts of songsters went to sea and journals of songs were made by sailors.
How to keep men occupied during days of just sailing in clement weather, or just looking for targets, was a problem; continuous work was not feasible.

Gale Huntington's book "Songs the Whalemen Sang" (repub. 2005, Mystic Seaport), 175 mid-19th c. songs from journals made up aboard sailing vessels, is a partial answer to your question. A second volume is in MS.

Not all sailors were ignorant drunken louts, incapable of speaking understandably, although unfortunately some modern chantey singers adopt this persona.

The old English words (14th c.) chant and chanting certainly would be known to the chantmen, although pronunciation with soft 'ch' was common.
Chaunt already was becoming chant in the 17th c and was usual in 19th c. English.

Humor, of course, is American; they lack humour (read long ago in an English magazine).

Trivia-
S. H. King was appointed official chantie instructor (1918) by the United States Shipping Board. He was religious, and often led bible studies at sailors' rests.

A long drag chantey, A Long Time Ago, from his "Book of Chanties,? [shortened title?] is on robokopp: http://musicanet.org/robokopp/shanty/alonglon.htm

The date on the book is given as 1918 by robokopp.

For those looking for Bill Adams songs, there are five: Stowaway, I've Been Dreamin', Johnnie Chantey-Man, Billy Peg-Leg's Fiddle, and L'Envoi.

There are more poems by old-sailor poet Bill Adams that I've posted to his page at the Oldpoetry Website: Click here for website

I've also posted poems by other old sailor-poets Harry Kemp and Burt Franklin Jenness on that same website.

There is also a thread here at Mudcat titled Old Sailor-Poets where I periodically add to the inventory. But the Oldpoetry website is indexed while the one here is by order of posting.

No chanteys in it, but full of sea songs is "Naval Songs and Ballads" edited by C.H.Firth, published by the Navy Records Society in 1908 (this is volume 33 of the Publications of the NRS). 123-page introduction by Professor Firth, 107 song lyrics (no music, but there is an index of tunes mentioned), and notes on each song and ballad. The songs are arranged chronologically, with the earliest dating to the 14th century (titled 'The Battle of Sluys').

Lots of the songs are unfamiliar to me, such as 'The English Seaman's Resolution', 'A Satyr on the Sea-Officers' and 'The Russians Won't Come Out'. But you'll find here 'Don't Forget Your Old Shipmate', 'The Death of Lord Nelson' and 'Andrew Barton'.

I wish I had time tonight to type up the list of songs...

Here's a suggestion to Q:

Secure editing powers for this thread, if you don't already have them, and post a running list of the songbooks that have already been digested as an initial post, and update it periodically. As this thread gets longer it will become more likely that some poor sod such as myself will post an index that has already been posted.

Have you discovered yet that the tune of "Dicey Reilly" (sp?) fits the words of Masefield's "Captain Stratton's Fancy" perfectly? A fun song to sing when rum is the libation of choice.

From the NOTES
   P. 328. Cawsand Bay. Version supplied by Sir J. K. Laughton, who writes: 'It was brought into vouge about fifty years ago by a dear friend and brother officer of mine, Richard Creagh Saunders, then Naval Instructor of the Marlborough, the flagship of the Mediterranean. He was a man of poetic feeling, with a pretty turn for versifying, and a good knowledge of music, though no voice to speak of. The account he gave menof it is this: He was staying in the country with an old messmate – I don't think he mentioned the name – who one day gve him some old journals, scrapbooks, &c., to look through; and among them he found this song, which he copied there and then. Of its origin there was no trace. I more than half suspect that he was himself the author of it. The tune to which he always sang it, and which his successors have of course followed, is, he said, an adaptation of an air in Don Giovanni.'

I obtained this book through interlibrary loan and now have a photocopy of it. Terry was from Northumberland, and this collection contains 10 songs from that region; he states in his introduction: "I have obtained them either aboard ship or from the mouths of seamen ashore."

For those 'Catters who might travel to Mystic, CT, for the 31st annual Sea Music Festival, I'll be presenting a paper at the Sea Music Symposium on Friday, June 11, tracing the history of one of the songs in Terry's book.

Shipcmo, where have you been all my life? And what are the hours your library is open?

Hi JWB, I dont suppose you could tell me if your version of the version of The Lion man-o'-war in the book has more than 2 verses? I only have two and would be interested to know if there is a third

Cheers

Guest Sam,

In Terry's Salt Sea Ballads the song "The Lion man-o'-war" has 6 verses. They are a variant of the song I know as "Warlike Seamen", which is in the Copper Family's repertoire. The melody Terry gives is not very close to the Coopers's tune.

Here's Terry's version:

We hadn't sailed twenty or thirty miles from shore,
Before we spied a large ship and down on us she bore.
She hailèd us in French, my boys, and askèd whence we came.
"We've just come round from Plymouth Sound, and the Lion is our name."

"Are you the Lion man-o'-war, as we suppose you be?"
"We are the Lion man-o'-war as you shall quickly see."
"Then haul your colours from the mast and come along with me,
Or we'll sink the Lion man-o'-war to the bottom of the sea."

Then up and spoke our captain and unto us did say
"Cheer up, cheer up, my merry men, we'll show them British play;
If this had been mine own brothèr the battle should have been tried;
Let every man stand true to his gun, and we'll give them a broadside."

The broadside was given, my boys, which made them all to wonder,
To see their fore-to'-gallant mast come bowling down like thunder.
We beat them from their quarters, no longer could they stay,
And the red hot shot poured in so hot, as we showed them British play.

"Oh now I plainly see you are a vessel of renown;
My ports are all knocked into one and I'll haul my colours down,
And my good sword I'll give to you, and we must go ashore,
And in the prison we will stay, and go to France no more."

So this large ship was taken, in Plymouth Sound 'twas moored;
We drank success and liberty to all that live on shore,
And hauling down the French colours, to hoist the red, white and blue,
We'll drink success unto the Lion and all her jolly crew.

Here is an excerpt from Terry's notes to The Lion Man-o'-war:

"A version of the words appears in Firth's Naval Songs and Ballads. The melody and two verses are quoted in L.A. Smith's The Music of the Waters. I do not think it has appeared in print before, with words and music complete."

Another classic for any armchair sailor would be THE MUSIC OF THE WATERS: a Collection of the Sailors Chanties, or Working Songs of the Sea, of All Maritime Nations, by Laura A. Smith, Kegan Paul, Trench & Co., London, UK, © 1888.

My copy cost $50 but it's well worth the price as the earliest comprehensive study of traditional sea songs.

Cheerily,

I have my hands on a copy of Davis & Tozer that I believe is probably the same version Q posted at the top of this thread. It is the "Revised Edition," not the Third. I believe it (or at least the one I have) can be dated to around 1927 -- unless it is a reprint of that edition. Some of the interesting things are that W.K. Hill, in his preface, makes reference to "the lover of folk music" and to "folk songs." I don't know for sure, but that doesn't sound to me like 1906 talk. And he says "As long ago as the year 1887..." in reference to the first edition. That sounds too distant a past for 1906. He says that aircraft was only a dream back then, but that now there is a "conquest of the air" -- which suggest tome after WWI.

The back of the book has ads for other publications. (Again, I suppose this could be a reprint, so, FWIW:) One add is for Sampson's _Seven Seas Shanty Book_ which came out in 1927. Also an ad for Davis & Tozer's own book, with a note that the original had appeared almost 40 years earlier.

Ads for other musical arrangements of chanties, too, always with the redundant phrase "sea shanties" that one imagines had become popular by that time as they were adopted as "folk" music.

Gibb, belated agreement that your D & T must be from '27, not '06, for most all the reasons you give.

It's also useful to see the publisher explicitly dating the first edition to 1887. When it appeared it was undated, and though 1887 was always the most likely date, this confirms it.

Acc. to WorldCat, ed. 1 has 48pp., ed. 2, 78pp., ed. 3, 95pp., and the "Revised Edition," 97pp.

There are a few collections/articles about chanties from the early 20th century that I'd like to review, but have not yet obtained. Would anyone like to share information about the contents of the following?:

1. 1904        Bradford, John and Arthur Fagge. _Old Sea Chanties._ London: Metzler & Co.

A small collection of just 17 pages. I believe it contains at least the following chanties, which were recorded ca. 1905 by the Minster Singers (see the thread on "Earliest Commercial Shanty Recordings"):

"Blow, My Bully Boys"
"Sally Brown"
"Whisky Johnny"
"Shenandoah"
"Rio Grande"
"Blow the Man Down."

I believe this was the first collection BTW to use the somewhat awkward phrase "sea chanties."

2. 1905 ??. "Some deep sea chanties." _Saturday Evening Post_ (2 Sept 1905).

3. 1905 ??. (Article on chanties). _Manchester Guardian_ (16 Aug. 1905).

4. 1906        Bernard, D.H. "Sea Songs and Chanties." _The Nautical Magazine_ 75.

5. 1909        Williams, J.H. "The Sailors' 'Chanties'." _The Independent_ (8 July 1909):76-83.

6. 1915        Derby, Thomas. "Sailors' Chanties or Working Songs of the Sea." _Manchester Quarterly_ 34: 285-302.

7. 1917        Brown, R. Curtis. "Sailors' Shanties." _The Nautical Magazine_ 97: 294-9.

I believe some of the above articles had their chanties harvested by authors of the better-known collections, so it would be instructive to see them.

Does anyone here know the exact contents of the 2nd edition of Davis and Tozer's collection?

We know the contents of the first edition, and of the third (added 10 more to the 2nd) and the "Revised" (added an alternate piano arrangement for "A Roving").

If no one knows, then I am going to do some text analysis and try to figure it out.

My interest is in knowing what versions of the text would have been available to other authors at various times. The writer Lubbock, for example, borrows some chanties (without credit, I believe) from Davis/Tozer for his 1902 book. Those chanties were not in D/T's first edition, and if the 3rd did not come out until 1906, they must have been in the 2nd edition. That D/T took the chanties from Lubbock is unlikely, I think.

I hope is that in nailing down the form of the 2nd edition, we can see the direction of influence easier. Especially since D/T tended to rewrite all the texts they collected, thereby obscuring their origins.

D/T was hugely influential on other writers of the time. And other writers repeating the same texts seems to have created a false consensus that their lyrics were authentic. I think that Stan Hugill was later "fooled" by this false consensus, and in adopting these lyrics into his own collection, they have received yet another stamp of authenticity.

King's Book of Chanties, Oliver Dotson Co. (1918) is mentioned above, but it doesn't look like anyone's transcribed the index, so here it is, from my copy. I should say that this is just a small pamphlet, and although the titles of these chanteys are familiar, many of the verses are quite different from those currently sung (at least around here - grin). I've kept King's spellings.

I'm looking to see what Sampson's (1927 Seven Seas Shanty Book) melody/music is for the chanty "Lowlands (Away)". The book seems rather rare in the States; I've only gotten a glimpse into the contents through the kindness of postings by other Mudcatters. However, I've still not seen the melody. Anyone able to help out? Thank you all.

Q listed the contents of W.B. Whall's "Sea Songs and Shanties" above.

eBay has a copy of the 1920 edition (stated as "first edition", but the book first appeared in 1910).

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sea-Songs-and-Shanties-W-B-Whall-1920-First-Edition-/110926697773?pt=Non_Fiction&hash=item19d3bf152d

Not bad if you got it for the starting price (£15). But the book is still in print, available from the original publishers, now known as Brown, Son & Ferguson (Glasgow) at £9.95. (£12.15 inc UK post, £14.81 overseas).

http://www.skipper.co.uk/catalogue/item/sea-songs-and-shanties

I have linked to Brown, Son & Ferguson's website in the Merchant Navy Songs Permathread. No other shanty books in their catalogue, but an incredible variety of books on Maritime subjects from the days of sail right up to technical manuals of the modern era. "Sea Songs and Shanties" is in the Story of the Sea section of the catalogue.

Can anyone, who has seen it, comment on the work _Shanties_ by George Marston and Doris Allen (H. Horsnell & H. Roberts, 1921)? It is not available in my area, and I would be pleased to know its contents.

It appears to be only 14 pages long, and I am guessing that it is a sort of songbook with tunes and lyrics for performance.

A review of Marston's _Shanties_, in Music & Letters (april 1922), is simple and blunt. The review asks what the point is to print a dozen of the best known shanties when there were already existing a half-dozen collections full of dozens of shanties.

Ah yes, but what little gems does it hold, like the "Swing yo' tail" (current thread) fragment?
