Go to Sea No More (than seven times)

with 2 comments

Update for Lowlands Low:

When Ham and Shem and Japhet, they walked the capstan round,
Upon the strangest vessel that was ever outward bound,
The music of their voices from wave to welkin rang,
As they sang the first sea chantey that seamen ever sang.

From Chanteys and Ballads, by Harry Kemp.

There are 7 relevantly differing books known by Stan Hugill:

Please note:

(Then) no more I’ll go to sea
Across the Western Ocean,
A-hauling and a-pulling

(Then) no more I’ll go to sea
Across the Western Ocean,
For evermore I’ll stay on shore
And go to sea no more.

Stan Hugill: The Anglesey, the very last song to sing along in: Shanties from the Seven Seas, 1961.

Hulton Clint calls for collaboration and chantey singing training!
