JWB Origins: Don't Forget Your Old Shipmate (8) Origins: Don't Forget Your Old Shipmate 20 Jan 10

I'm trying to track down the version of this song that appears in R.R.Terry's "Salt Sea Ballads", published by J.Curwen in 1931. Does anyone happen to have a copy? I want to know what the lyrics are, and if there is a chorus given, and of course, the melody (apparently this book includes piano arrangements of all the songs contained therein).

This is the same song that appears in the movie "Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World".

Thanks for your help,
