After struggling to find happy songs, especially sea shanties to write in my song book I have been forced to ask for help. If you have a song happy (or sad), or in between, or a song you request for me to sing I am opening my book to your suggestions. I have been invited to sing in the Wolf's Den and in the hope of not making anyone cry (due to us all having too much to cry about) I hope you can give me some good suggestions. Thank you.
Thank you so much for all your music suggestions all is appreciated this is still open to comment at but I just wanted to say thank you for everyone who helped!
Wish I'd know last week. Had my guitar in my coach all WitL
I sailed once with a mad lad who raised a sunken ship damn near by himself. Good story, makes for a good song. Makes my husband cry though, so just don't sing it around him. Words are attached.
(Song is The Mary Ellen Carter - the cover by The Longest Johns is an upbeat version of the original by Stan Rogers. https://youtu.be/JKsVidS70xQ)
I have a song that I like and you might sometimes hear me sing, called Bully Boys I will send you a missive about the lyrics. -Djinn ( OOG: https://alandoyle.ca/lyrics-bully-boys/ )
You may already know this song, but years ago I met a bard who spent a lot of time on the sea. He sang a song that always struck me.
It was called the song of the Mariner's Revenge. It's a powerful, dark, and sad song.
Good luck in your search.
