Songs of the Late Charles Dibdin - ,

John Murray, 1841.

Charles Dibdin (1745-1833) wrote hundreds of poems and songs, many of which were used in his comic operas and boisterous entertainments. "The sea-songs, numbering close on a hundred, are the best though by no means the only good ones. 'Tom Bowling' and 'Poor Jack' and 'Twas in the good ship Rover' are well enough known." [Survey of English Literature, 1780-1830]
