Paddy Doyle's Boots
Last updated: 22.04.17

This is a fine, rousing shanty which I first heard on a recording by The Clancy Brothers in the early sixties. I love belting this song out and it's a good attention getter when singing in the street. The version I sing can be found in the Clancy Brother's The Irish Songbook. Their version is most certainly based on that of Master Mariner W.B. Whall in his Sea Songs Ships and Shanties so much so that it's hard to understand their copyright claims. Our bold Master Mariner says that "Paddy Doyle's Boots" was always used to bunt a sail up in furling and used for no other purpose. This song may be found in the Tyneside Maritime Chorus songbook but not yet in my personal repertoire
