I strongly suspect either Bert or Mike had a hand in the chorus and tune.

Interesting to note the similarities between The Whitby Lad and The Boston Burglar (both are in DT)

Both derived from the British broadside 'Botany Bay'.

Steve, is your British broadside Botany Bay the one with the too-ra-li-addity chorus is it.

No that's a different song entirely. There are at least 4 broadside songs with the 'Botany Bay' title. The 'too-ra-li-addity' is better known as a folksong 'Here's Adieu to all Judges and Juries'. I'd imagine both of these should be in the DT as separate entries. If not they should be.

Here are details on the 4 songs so we don't get confused.

1) (This thread) FL 'Come all young men of learning' 6 or 7 stanzas.
Roud 261, Laws L16. Most common and widely printed in England.

2) (The one mentioned by Squeezer) the older one 18thc. FL '(Here's) Adieu to your judges and juries,' later common versions 7 stanzas. Roud 300, not very common in oral tradition and not in America.

3) FL 'Come all you young fellows whoever that you be' 6-7 stanzas, similar to 1) Not in oral tradition

4) FL 'You have read of Captain Cook our late worthy' as sung at the Crown and Anchor, Strand' Not in oral tradition.

There may well be others in oral tradition but these are all I have on broadside with that title.
