This traditional sea shanty. Sailors were supposed to pull the sails during the chorus and rest in the verse. I focused more on the goodbye-ness of the song than the work of getting the sails ready for sea. My friend Cayla Cardiff came up with a variety of harmonies. She recorded both upper and lower harmonies and they are not the same static harmonies through the entire song. Her harmonies lift this song into a collective cry of parting from sweethearts and family.
