Outward & Homeward Bound

Outward & Homeward Bound was collected by Cecil Sharp and published in English Folk-Songs for Schools 1906, including the lines about the sailor giving his “old girl a hearty smack” and she replying “You are saucy…!”. The drawing is of the West India Docks, London 1888 as I couldn’t find a suitable one of the Katherine Docks mentioned in the song.
