In early America goods were transported from town to town via the rivers and waterways. The professional boatman spent years traveling down rivers and streams and back again, and became one of the most interesting figures of frontier life. He was of the restless type that in every period of American development has done the unusual and dangerous thing just for the love of doing it.
�Dance, Boatsman, dance. Dance, Boatsman, dance. Stay out all night, �til the broad daylight,
Coming home with the girls in the morning. Hey, ho, the boatsman row, Sail down the river on the Ohio.�
