stallion Origins: The Priest and the Nuns (16) RE: Origins: The Priest and the Nuns 13 Jul 12


The Johnson girls recorded it, Barry Finn learnt it from an east European Shanty singer( I think it was east european, maybe Polish, Charlie will know) Haven't heard Salty Dicks version before but essentially the same as the unexpurgated version I sing, it isn't difficult to work out the substituted words!. When I mentioned to Barry that I was going to sing it he said " Don't sing it over here, people are a bit sensative about having religion on both ends of the pump handle" Its too bawdy for mixed company although I was persuaded to sing it at half past midnight in McHugh's, Seattle, during Northwest Folklife Fest. it was the ladies that asked for a bawdy song, they loved it!
