On the CD Ryan's Fancy, Songs From The Show there is a song titled as above, the tune is alternately known as Rant & Roar, Yankee Whalermen, Ladies of Spain and I would not be surprised if a few more. What I can not figure for the life of me is why this title for this version? The song mentions neither Ryans nor Pitmans.

Any Ideas?

Well - the narrator tells us he is called 'Bob Pittman' - which, of course, does not explain the title - but it is mention of a Pittman!

That is the usual name of the Newfoundland song, anyway ...

I have listened to it many, many times and not picked up on that, I'll listen harder, perhaps he is marrying a Ryan hence all the furniture etc he is buying
