Rev. James Duncan (Greig-Duncan, p. 497) notes that this song was "used for hauling the foresheet or bowline, the haul being at the last word". W. M. Doerflinger ('Songs of the Sailor and Lumberman', 1972, pp. 9-10) observes that the term 'bowline' has been out of use for a few centuries, suggesting that this song is at least that old.
