CAPTAIN KIDD (go to an alternate version)


Chorus

My name is Captain Kidd, as I sailed, as I sailed
My name is Captain Kidd, as I sailed
My name is Captain Kidd and God's laws I did forbid
And most wickedly I did, as I sailed


***********

My parents taught me well to shun the gates of Hell
But against them I rebelled, as I sailed
They shoved a Bible in my hand, but I left it in the sand
As I pulled away from land, as I sailed

Chorus

***********

Oh, I murdered William Moore, as I sailed, as I sailed
Many leagues from shore, as I sailed
And being crueler still my gunner I did kill
And his precious blood did spill, as I sailed

Chorus

***********

I was sick and nigh to death and I vowed with every breath
To walk in wisdom's path as I sailed
My repentance lasted not, my vows I soon forgot
Damnation was my lot, as I sailed

Chorus

***********

To the execution dock lay my head upon the block
The laws no more I'll mock as I sail
Take a warning now by me and shun bad company
Lest you wind up just like me, as I sailed

Chorus

***********
