Rolling Down the Bay to Juliana
This halyard shanty is also known as Emma Emma. A.L. Lloyd, Johnny Collins and The Watersons have all recorded it. Lloyd commented , on an album note: “This shanty is primitive in structure, a litany-like one liner, with a chorus on a fine descending slope. Ted Howard, a pillar of the Barry Riggers, a club of old time sailing ship men, recorded this for us shortly before his death in 1954. “Pull on the end of Juliana,” says Ted”..
