Bonus Features – Three Shanties

Time for another set of bonus features!

For “Drunken Sailor“, you can’t go wrong with the Irish Rovers.

Boney Was a Warrior

Here’s a traditional-sounding version of good old Boney.  I love their outfits!

And this one rocks!

Johnny Come Down to Hilo
This is a good place to note that there are some variations in the lyrics, as is common with folk music.  One version in particular was no big deal in its day, but certainly would not be acceptable today (“N” word).  Don’t worry, I haven’t linked that one here 🙂

I love the lead singer’s voice!

Maybe not the prettiest version, but they sure are having fun!  And isn’t that the point of music?
