Sailor ways and sailor days The singing of shanties was a colourful but essential part of life aboard deep-water sailing ships. The shanty served to cheer all hands and unify their efforts under hardgoing and heavy weather. Each song had its own charm and particular purpose, short-haul shanties, such as “Paddy Doyle ,"and "Early in the morning,” accompanying the action of furling sailor sweating up the halyards. For longer tasks, such as hoisting topsails and pumping ship, there were the halyard shanties—-"B low the man down a,""R n zo ,”"Tom my’s gone to H ilo "W,"and a y ,hey, let the Bullgine run ."Other grand old tunes were sung when manning the capstan, typical being “Shenandoah,"" R io Grand e "S”and anty Anna.” I'he beauty of sail has faded from the sea and the shanties have gone with the men who sang them ,but cordage and canvas still play a worthy part aboard ship.
