Golden Vanity by Roger McGuinn (traditional sea ballad in MP3)

This song is about a cabin boy on the ship Golden Vanity who swims alongside an enemy ship and sinks it. He undertook the mission after being promised the hand of the captain's daughter. Not wanting to see his daughter get married, the captain breaks his promise and refuses to let the lad return to the ship. The boy is saved from drowning by his shipmates but dies on the deck.
