Believe it or not it is a traditional sailor's song:

It is possible that this song was inspired by an actual event, where a female convict (Charlotte Badger), sailing on the colonial brigantine Venus, convinced members of the crew to commandeer the vessel, sailing from Port Dalrymple in Van Diemens Land (now Tasmania) in 1806


Have some more from the same album and from favorite singers of mine, Nick Cave and Bryan Ferry:



here you can explore the rest of the Album that has some great sea songs:

You have to go to the address with the q out and you will have a gallery with 10 songs. If I post only the address it will go to not to a gallery but only to the first song.
