Sailing specific songs

I'm going winter crazy already.

There are a few threads like this, but I'm trying to collect songs specifically about sailing or sailors. Not fav songs while sailing, we've done that.

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.

Here are a few to get started. Got any?? Its going to be a long winter.........

Come sail away - Styx
Cool change - Little River Band
Soul of a Sailor - Kenny Chesney
Sailing - Christopher Cross
Sail Away - Randy Newman
Sail On - Commodores
Son of a son of a Sailor - Jimmy Buffet
Brandi - Looking glass
Sloop John B - Beach Boys
