From that same painting in progress, nearly done now.

But what are they singing? The Golden Vanity? No, too sad. Haul Away Joe? That's more like it. Or Away You Rio? Could be. Maybe Leave Her, Johnny, Leave Her? Yes, that's the one!

These songs and over sixty more are to be found in Burl Ives' Sea Songs of Sailing, Whaling, and Fishing.
