GUEST,Kelly Lyr Req: Shantyman (Bob Watson) (14) Lyr Req: Shanty Man 28 Jan 03

Hia, I'm only a young folkie (13) and I'm looking to expand my repetoir (sp?!) Recently I heard a woman sing a really nice chorus song when i was away for a weekend with the folk club i go to.
I assume the song's called Get away you Shanty Man, but I'm not sure.
Anyway, I'll give you the chorus (seeing as it's the only thing i can remember!)

Shanty man
Oh! Shanty man
Who'll give a birth to a shanty man?
I'll sing you a song of a world gone wrong
Cos they got no use for the shanty man

Thats about as accurate as I can remember.
I'd be really apreciative if anyone could send me the full lyrics for this song.
Thanks all
