It is important I feel to look at the original collectors sources and not rely on Mainly Norfolk and Bert Lloyd ~ lots of changes will have occurred both before and after the collectors, collected and parodies will happen to the tune and meter of the original songs

The words I took down from the video of Arlo and friends are most like the A.L. Lloyd version mentioned in the mainlynorfolk thread above. I think the clamzo version is Arlo's parody? So said someone at the song swap.

Thanks, everyone.

Do also check out Arlo's "Reuben Clamzo".

Wild Goose shanty is in Hugill first published 1961
a different song to Reuben Ranzo ~ with negroe connections ~ and huckleberry hunting

Wm Main Doerflinger book Shanty men and Shanty boys ~ Songs of the Sailor and Lumberman 1951 copyright has original version of Reuben Ranzo as he collected it I suspect ~ also in Hugill with umpteen collected verses noted

Thank you for your praise, Starship ;-)

The Wild Goose Shanty has just been discussed here in the last days, including referring to Kate Rusby. It is quite a different song (Roud 328) to Reuben Ranzo (Roud 3282),just sharing the name 'Ranzo' in the chorus.

Looks like the first version (Ranzo) is closest to the one he sang though I didn't check out the tune.

There are several others riffing off the same topic so I am sure they are all related.

Kate Rusby calls her version The Wild Goose and it's pretty different from the others, though obviously also related.

I will check the DT, Dave. Thanks, Starship, for posting the link.

There's a song swap today and I got fired up about learning it, so I tried to get the words off the youtube video.

There's one verse I'm unsure about but the rest was easy. Just took a bit of time.

The only other version I know at all is the one Kate Rusby does but this one seems to have more to it.

It is more commonly known as Ruben Ranzo and it can be found in the DT as Ranzo:-
    Although he weren't no sailor,
    Ranzo me boys, Ranzo,
    He shipped aboard a whaler,
    Ranzo me boys, Ranzo

if that is the version for which you are searching.

Hi,

Today I came across a Soundstage show from 1974 in Chicago with Arlo, Steve Goodman and Hoyt Axton where they were doing this together acappella.(This all started because Hoyt's song I love to Sing was in my brain this morning and I couldn't get it out, so I was searching for stuff of his on youtube.) I love sea chanties and had heard other versions but not this one. Does anyone have the words to this? The only thread I could find was from catspaw, may he RIP, and he links the show on that thread. (it's just about the last thing they do in the 20+ minute segment.
