Stormy Weather Boys

Stormy Weather Boys is a splendid song which I first heard sung by my much admired Bob Roberts on a Wally Whyton radio broadcast and which I immediately recorded for later transcription in the early 1980's. According to Roy Palmer's The Oxford Book of Sea Songs, old Bob put his version together from three different pieces. It tells of a ribald voyage from London to Yarmouth where amongst other macho activities, unsaid things are perpetrated on a "mermaid covered in slime". Great stuff indeed which I love belting out.
