Re: Sailing specific songs

Doesn't matter the era or genre or even if you like them, I will sort them out. Beaches, oceans, and particularly stinkpots don't count. The song needs to be about sailing or sailors, but it doesn't have to be in the title.


Shrimpboats by Jo Stafford, 1951. There is an oddity here: I was 5 in Savannah, Ga when this song came out. She mentions sails in the song but upon researching shrimp boats, the 1950 era boats didn't seem to have any sails, they looked to be just smaller versions of today's boats. I'm hoping the author was older and reminiscing about HIS childhood. I found some 1910 boats with sails but these were very different boats.
