    Timeless lyrics, near-global universal pentatonic melody.

    But it was always played sped up a fraction to give it more energy than heard in this probably faithful recording.

    •  You're right; it's a near perfect song. (1+ / 0-)

      I've heard it thousands of times but for some reason I never tire of it.

      •  My Music Is Trad Celtic and This Would be (0+ / 0-)

        a perfect 10 in every niche of mine I can think of. I'm not only a musician --Celtic trad where this would be a perfect 10 for anything from bagpipes to house party song solo-- but also I'm a sailor.

        I've gone thru the song and concluded that for probably every key word in each phrase of the lyrics, the melody note of the scale that it's sung to is probably the best possible choice for the context out of the whole scale.

        It's really one for the ages.
