The Carter Family was a key musical group in the early 20th Century, and one of the daughters, June Carter, later married Johnny Cash. This American Folk/Old Time traditional song has been played and sung many ways, and even the Carter Family sang it from the differing perspectives from the man and then from the woman on occasion. The story is about a man going away to sea, but he tries to reassure the girl that he loves he will be faithful to her. Some believe that the tune may have originated out of the time of the War of 1812. The KelticDead Music arrangement blends the differing versions into one composition, and as always the KDM Group plays this tune using live instruments that are normally used in Celtic music sessions.
