Notes About This Song

"The Handsome Cabin Boy" is a traditional folk song. Zappa played a version by Ewan MacColl on KSAN, San Francisco.

"He knew a lot of folk songs, sea chanteys. Who would expect a rock band to be listening to A.L. Lloyd and Ewan MacColl sea chanteys? In all things unusual, he had an interest." [1]
