The Robber Bird track 7

A well-known halyard shanty. There's a lengthy Mudcat thread about the song, its variants, its use on ship, and discussion on the meaning of the word "hanging" in this context. You'll need a greater knowledge than I have of the workings of sailing ships to be able to evaluate all the theories.
