2 or 3 years ago, I'm sure I heard a song about a ship called the Caledonia. (Not Dougie Mclean). Is this the fevered imagination of an old wrinkly or can someone point me in the right direction, please.

Hi - This thread (click) talks of a song about a vessel bound for Caledonia, but I didn't find any about a vessel named Caledonia.
I added a bit to your thread title so it would be clear what you are seeking. I hope somebody comes up with an answer for you.

I wrote one, called "Roll, Caledonia," but since I never played outside of the USA, I doubt it is mine you recall hearing.

No songs yet but some ships to look for:
Caledonia (1839 brig)
HMS Caledonia

I was looking for a song about this bunch awhile back, no luck so far:
Darien Disaster : The Roll Family Windmill

I sailed across the ocean on a ship with that name ....

The song goes something like that, right?

I think Joe might be right in that there is a possibiity that you're maybe thinking about the vessel sailing to Caledonia rather than a vessel called Caledonia. Caledonia is one of the songs in "Ord's Bothy Songs And Ballads". Here is Emily Smith singing it. Does this sound like the song??

May not be relevant, but I thought some of you might find this of interest, recalling the days of 'sailing doon the water' on the Clyde. I remember seeing PS Caledonia racing PS Waverley on their return home to Glasgow on a Sunday evening in 1968, this was a regular occurence and was quite exciting! I also remember her in the 70's when she was moored as a floating 'gin palace' on the Thames which, for me, was very sad to see after her glorious, previous life.

Thanks one and all - it may be the Emily Smith one. Trouble is, I write an approximation of the title and a few words on a scruffy bit of paper which I find some months or years later - then I cant even remember how the song goes. Anyway, this one sounds good so I will try and learn it.
