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


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 did I kill
All his precious blood did spill
As I sailed


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


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
