Thread Name: Who sings about tugboats?
Subject: RE: Who sings about tugboats?
Don"t know any British songs about tugs, but I guess there ought to be some ! I read lots of books about them ,though, by Dutch author Jan de Haartog ----they were fascinating !! And Turner"s "Fighting Temeraire " painting shows an early steam-tug, towing the eponymous man-O" War to the breaker"s yard.And I used to work on a tug, called the "WEY" , on the river Thames.Better get writing, I think !!
