Thank you, the whole reason I created this channel was with the goal of putting all pirate songs in one place and using it as a platform of raising awareness to the genre and artists like yourself.


@A Pirate's Life no worries :)

Ye Olde Salty Dog

0:07 to 2:24 is the former HMS Rose they turned into the HMS Surprise for the Movie Master and Commander. I was active duty Navy in San Diego (2000-2005) when a fine lass asked me out one night (2002) then a few months later here was the Rose. My lady who worked for the Maritime Museum of San Diego "Living History aboard the Star of India" and Sport fishing in the summer, knew all they were about to do. We took mad pictures. Was strange, I had my own version of Top Gun and anything tallship related back then. I rubbed shoulders with stars of all kinds both from there and the Navy.. Now those are but just memories. Retired in Nevada and long for a day I will sell my house and see what tallship needs a crew I so want to run away again once more. Beware the call of the sea! For once that salt water gets in your blood, you're bound to its calling eternally. -ABE2 (AW) 'Golden Shellback'


This song is sung in Captains Courageous (a novel by Rudyard Kipling), and I never actually knew the tune before.

My high school mascot was the dreadnaught, lol. I definitely like this song, maybe I'll recommend it as the school song.
