“Conroy's Camp”


(The company sets out for camp and) arrives at Waltham, where they stop to drink. The singer describes the several men in the crew.


Like so many lumbering songs, this is a "moniker song" devoted mostly to listing the men in the crew-- though, in this case, it catalogs their behavior on their way to camp rather than their behavior *in* camp. - RBW
