Tom Waits sings “Shenandoah” with Keith Richards. Classic.

As Open Culture describes it, the song is part of a sea shanty tsunami:

“In 2006, Anti- Records, home of Tom Waits, Nick Cave, Neko Case, Kate Bush (and so many more favorites of mine, this list is already too long), published the tons-of-fun compilation Rogue’s Gallery, a selection of sea shanties and pirate songs as interpreted by an ensemble of luminaries from the pop, indie, and folk worlds. The two-CD, forty-three track release is available on YouTube (I’d recommend Nick Cave’s “Fire Down Below,” but he’s an old hand at this kind of thing).
