A song that eludes to the famous Dr.Syn and the legends of the Romney Marsh, where Jayl originates from. It contains the famous sea shanty from the Dr.Syn novels. Jayl sang this to Daniel Thorndike (famous actor and son of the author) in Daniel's garden one summer's afternoon and thus obtained permission to use it.
