Captain Kidd
(Traditional: Arranged by Margo and Michael Timmins )

My name was Captain Kidd, when I sailed, when I sailed.
My name was Captain Kidd, when I sailed, when I sailed.
And so wickedly I did, God's laws I did forbid.

I roamed from sound to sound, and many ships I've found.
I roamed from sound to sound, and many ships I've found.
And that night I saw ....

I murdered William Moore and I laid him in his gore.
I murdered William Moore and I laid him in his gore.
And this I did to him, A-many leagues from shore

Farewell to young and old, the jolly sea
Farewell to young and old, the jolly sea even more
and welcome to my ...
and the open ... door

Farewell to London town and the pretty girls around.
Farewell to London town and the pretty girls around.
My friends have all vanished, in the garden can be found.

Farewell, for I must die, I must die, I must die
Farewell, for I must die, I must die, I must die
and in my own misery I must lie, I must lie
I must lie, must lie, must lie, must lie
