OK, we’re back on track now with the Ditties. Today I was at a total loss for what to write, so I decided to do a “this day in history” ditty. And I found the ridiculous story of Vasa, a Swedish warship that sank about 100 meters from shore on its maiden voyage, August 10, 1628. It’s a ridiculous story, and I thought it needed to be told as sea shanty, naturally. Pay special attention to my expert mandolin stylings on this one. Yyyyyeah.
