GUEST,kendall Lyr Req: Sing me a Shanty (35) RE: Lyr Req: Sing me a Shanty 11 Jan 16


any landlubbers have a confusion about the word "Sheets" in this context, it has nothing to do with sails. A sheet is a rope, or line if you wish. Sheets control the bottom of the sails. Halyards are also lines; they raise and lower the sails.

I can not listen to this song without tearing up. Especially that last verse. Thanks again, Mike, you are one of my few heroes.

By the by, Jacqui and I have a few copies of our rendition of this gem.
