Forum - Banjo Ben Clark

Billy Ben! Where have you been?

Howdy!

I came across a song that I can’t get out of my head and I really want to play it. The version I heard was off the Ronnie & Rob McCoury album and it is so cool! Still trying to figure out how to learn by ear.

Ben, Please teach us this song!

Ha…My Dad used to sing that to us when we were little . .

I am pretty sure that song has it’s origins in English folk music -sea shanty -soldier abroad

I love it! Would make a great harmony banjo lesson.
