(Part 3) Boat Songs

Continuing the boat series ahead, let me present today my next subset. Since the beginning of the series, I came across songs sung by boatmen. So far all the songs in the initial couple of parts were sung by the passengers on a boat. I strictly avoided songs sung by boatmen. Finally I am here …
