Songs of the Civil War

"CHANTEY IRISH" Volume 3, copyright 1987, 60 minutes.

These are the songs to be found in the camps of the many Irish troops, and on the docks of both navies. Forced to emigrate to foreign lands by the potato famine in Ireland, thousands of young Paddys arrived just in time to be handed a gun and marched off to fight In the Civil War. During the long voyage to "Amerikay", the rich store of sea chanteys became pan of their song-bag, and in turn, many a sailor's long watch at the pumps went faster with "Rosin the Beau".
