Interesting Facts about the Goodbye My Love Goodbye
Here is the hauling shanty. Tozer and Colcord give a version of the former giving a set of very sentimental verses which Stan Hugill, fell sure to have been made up. C. F. Smith sees in it a resemblance to „Shallow Brown”.
The song will be reconstructed by myself as the halyard shanty.
