Deep Sea Tug
[Harry Robertson (1923-1995)]
Danny Spooner sang Deep Sea Tug in 1986 on his Sandstock album I Got This One From…. He noted:
Deep Sea Tug is the work of the great song-crafter Harry Robertson who lives in Queensland. Harry was aboard the tug in 1945 when the events mentioned occurred. I learned this song from Sally Henderson in early 1985, and as I was once a salvage tug skipper the song brings back many memories for me. Apart from that I know no other songs about tugs which were so much a part of my early life.
Please find the lyrics for this song at Harry Robertson's website.
