Captain Kidd Lyrics

Great Big Sea – Captain Kidd Lyrics

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 law's 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 the 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
Many leagues away from shore
As I sailed
And being crueler still
The gunner I did kill
Oh, his prescious 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
Alas no more I'll mock
As I sailed
So take warning here and heed
And shun bad company
Or you'll wind up just like me
As I sailed
