Great Big Sea lyrics : "Captain Kidd"

My name is Captain Kidd
As I sailed, as I sailed,
Oh 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 father taught me well
To shun the gates of hell,

But against him I rebelled as I sailed,
He shoved a bible in my hand
But I left it in the sand

And I pulled away from land,
As I sailed


[Chorus]

I murdered William Moore

And I left him in his gore
Twenty leagues away from shore
As I sailed,

And being crueler still, the gunner I did kill
All his precious blood did spill,
As I sailed,


[Chorus]


I was sick and nigh to death,
And I vowed at every breath,
Oh to walk in wisdom's path,

As I sailed
But my repentance lasted not,
My vows I soon forgot,

Oh damnation is my lot,
As I sailed.


[Chorus]

To the execution dock

Lay my head upon the block,
Laws no more I'll mock as I sail,
So take warning here and heed

To shun bad company
Or you'll wind up just like me
As I sailed.
