This hand-over-hand chant, printed in Stan Hugill's shanty text, was culled from Doerflinger's work. Doerflinger gave it in the context of illustrating the development of shantying. He got it from Capt. James P. Barker, who would have sung it around the turn of the 20th century. It was a simple sing-out for taking in the slack of a rope.
