Johnny Boker is a sea chantey used for reefing the sail (shortening it so there is less area for wind to hit it) and furling a sail (rolling it up). Both actions require pulling on a rope with force. The sailors would sway back and forth with the song until the last “do!” and then pull on the rope together. Recommended for grades 1-6.
