Drunken Sailor arranged for Guitar & Piano, with variations.

Drunken Sailor is a famous traditional sea shanty also known as What Should We Do with the Drunken Sailor? and Sailor’s Holiday.

It begins with the question, "What shall we do with a drunken sailor, early in the morning?" (Or sometimes "What do you do," etc.) Each verse thereafter suggests a method of sobering or castigating, or simply abusing the sailor.

One of the most notable aspects of the song is that the word "early" is often pronounced "earl-lie", (throughout the song, if at all).

The song is #322 on the Roud Folk Song Index.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
