@davisjames Thanks for listening Buddy, I have also heard it called Padstow Farewell Shanty, Cornish Farewell Shanty and Bristol Leaving Shanty. I'm sure there are lots of different names for this tune.

That's a great song.In all my years around shanties,sea songs,etc.,I've never heard it before.

It's quite chilly today here in OH US, too-- snow flurries off and on for awhile.  Yes, good to have the mountain dulcimers!  :)

@robin-thompson It's a cold and blustery one here today, good thing we have a couple of dulcimers to keep us warm inside. Happy International Appalachian Dulcimer Day to you!
