Default Roll dat Cott' n...

Actually comes from an old 78 rpm Edison platter about the crew aboard a cotton packet. The ancient, scratchy recording starts out with, of course, the blast of the steamboat's whistle and the Head Mate's roar. Then a rouster with the deepest voice on the crew raises the tune: "Roll dat cott' n. Roll dat Cott' n. Roll dat cott' n... R-r-r-o-o-o-o-l-l-l-l-l."

It would have brought tears to H. Tate's eyes.
