These are a collection of songs that took a long time to accumulate from the far reaches of maritime history. This page lists a great deal of historically important lyrics and evidence of the way that sailors of old lived and worked.
Their thoughts about women, shipmates, jobs of work and a lot of other daily life routines are evidenced here.
The songs are an important part of our seafaring history.
Some of these lyrics pages have the chords.
There are somewhere in the vicinity of 243 Lyric pages here.
This is a good source for those of us who like to sing Sea Shanties.
People sometimes make a living singing sea shanties, and there are choral groups that do it as well.

The song that I have sung in the upper video on this page is not a sea shanty but I like it so here it is.

Song
Published1924[1]
GenreJazz
Composer(s)Ray Henderson
Lyricist(s)Mort Dixon

'Bye Bye Blackbird' is a song published in 1924 by Jerome H. Remick and written by the American composer Ray Henderson and lyricist Mort Dixon. It is considered a popular standard and was first recorded by Sam Lanin's Dance Orchestra in March 1926.[2]

Song information[edit]

Popular recordings in 1926 were by Nick Lucas, Gene Austin, Benny Krueger and by Leo Reisman.[3] It was the number 16 song of 1926 according to Pop Culture Madness.[4]

In popular culture[edit]

In 'Goodbye Nkrumah' (1966) Beat poet Diane Di Prima asks:

And yet, where would we be without the American culture
Bye bye blackbird, as Miles plays it, in the ’50s[5]

In the 1968 film Isadora, the song plays in the background as Isadora Duncan and a young man leave a party on the French Riviera. The scene and the song reappear throughout the movie until the end, when Duncan’s scarf snags in the wheel of the car.

In 1982, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) posthumously awarded John Coltrane a 'Best Jazz Solo Performance' Grammy for the work on his album Bye Bye Blackbird.[6]

Recordings of the song often include only the chorus; the verses are far less known.[7]

Segregationists opposed to the American Civil Rights Movement, notably at the Selma to Montgomery marches, played the song over loudspeakers as a taunt.[8]

Two former Beatles have each recorded the song: Ringo Starr for his 1970 album Sentimental Journey, and Paul McCartney for his 2012 album Kisses on the Bottom. Both men have commented that the song was one of many 'standards' that they grew up singing with their families.[9][10] McCartney also noted in the CD booklet for Kisses On The Bottom that he and John Lennon had liked the song so much that they had intended to record a Beatles version of it.[citation needed]

It is used in the musicals Liza with a Z and Fosse, and also the 2006 film adaptation of The History Boys.[citation needed]

It is sung by multiple characters in Season 1 episode 4 of the 2019 Series World on Fire.

It is sung by Faye Dunaway, leading a group sing along at a party, in the 1993 Columbo episode It's All in the Game (Season 10 Episode 7).
