shipcmo Parlor Songs of the Sea (5) Parlor Songs of the Sea 31 Mar 11

Recently I have been reviewing Huntington's "Songs the Whaleman Sang" section: "Parlor Songs That Went to Sea", and Stuart Frank's "Jolly Sailors Bold", together with a reprint of "Songs, Naval and National, of the late Charles Dibdin". I recently posted "The heaving of the lead" by Pearce and Shield in 'Sea Chantey Lyrics, MIDI tunes, & MP3's' thread, in abc notation from "The Songs of England" by J.L. Hatton, because it seemed to me to be an interesting piece.
Current performers do not have the old sailor's inhibitions; the Press Gang often sang Dibdin's "Tom Bowling".
So I thought of starting this thread to cast a net for interesting songs.
BTW, I think Davis & Tozers "Sailors' Songs or "Chanties" could be titled "Sailor Songs that came into the Parlor".
