Captain Kidd                            - Great Big Sea
============
Intro: F Fsus4 F   F Fsus4 F

   F       Fsus4   F                       C   
My name is Captain Kidd, as I sailed, as I sailed,
      F       Fsus4   F          C
Oh my name is Captain Kidd, as I sailed.
   Bb                             F             C
My name is Captain Kidd and God's laws I did forbid,
         F     Fsus4   F   C    F Fsus4 F  
And most wickedly    I did as I sailed.


   F      Fsus4     F                         C
My father taught me well to shun the gates of Hell,
     F          Fsus4   F            C
But against him I     rebelled, as I sailed.
            F     Fsus4    F                         C
He shoved a bible in    my hand but I left it in the sand,
      F       Fsus4     F          C
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]                               *********************
                                       *     Tabbed By     *

(solo - one 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...
The 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.


   F       Fsus4   F                       C   
My name is Captain Kidd, as I sailed, as I sailed,
      F       Fsus4   F         C
Oh my name is Captain Kidd as I sailed,
   Bb                             F             C
My name is Captain Kidd and God's laws I did forbid,
         F     Fsus4   F   C    F Fsus4 F  
And most wickedly    I did as I sailed.
     F     Fsus4   F   C    F Fsus4 F  
Most wickedly    I did as I sailed.
