Ramblers' Retreat

Jul 21, 2021 6:00 AM – 8:00 AM

Music

With Greg Harness

A broad swath of folk music.

Several Songs about Whaling

They took us jolly sailor lads
Fishing for the whale
On the fourth day of August in 1864
Bound for Greenland we set sail

Well, the lookout stood on the crosstrees high
A spyglass in his hand
“There’s a whale, there’s a whale, there’s a whalefish,” he cried
And she blows on every span
