“Goodbye, Fare You Well (I)”


"Fare you well,Julianna, you know, Hoo row, row, row, my boys, To the westward we roll and we now coming home, Goodbye, fare you well, goodbye, fare you well." The sailors bid farewell to the whales and look forward to arriving home


A great tune; I'm surprised it's not more widely collected. But hardly a good sentiment in these days. - RBW
