Traditional/Cindy Kallet. I used to nurse my boys to sleep with the help of songs, among them, “Shallow Brown,” one of the most beautiful and terrible sea shanteys I know. One night, after they’d both fallen asleep, “Cargo” appeared. Obviously not an historically accurate report, but rather a feeling-story that just sang itself in the window one night. Sheet music available.
