CAPTAIN ROBERT KIDD.

You captains bold and brave hear our cries, hear our cries.
You captains bold and brave hear our cries.
You captains brave and bold, tho' you seem uncontroll'd,
Don't for the sake of gold lose your souls.

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

My parents taught me well when I sailed. when I sail'd,
My parents taught me well when I sailed,
My parents taught me well to slum the gates of hell.
But against them I rebell'd when I sailed.

I cursed my father dear When I sailed, when I sail d,
I cursed my father dear when I sailed,
I cursed my father dear, and her that did me bear.
And so wickedly did swear, When I sailed.

I made a solemn vow when I sailed, when I sailed,
I made a solemn vow when I sailed,
I made a solemn vow, to God I would not bow,
Nor myself one prayer allow, as I sailed.

I'd a bible in my hand When I sailed, when I sail'd,
I'd a bible in my hand when I sail'd,
I'd a bible in my hand, by my father's great command,
And sunk it in the sand when I sail'd.

I murder'd William Moore as I sail'd, as I sail'd,
I munier'd William Moore as I sail'd,
I murder'd William Moore, and left him in his gore.
Not many leagues from shore, as I sail'd.

And being cruel still, as I sail'd, as I sail'd,
And being cruel still, as I sail'd,
And being cruel still, my gunner I did kill.
And his precious blood did spill, as I sail'd.

My mate was sick and died, as I sail'd. as I sail'd,
My mate was sick and died, as I sail'd,
My mate was sick and died, which me much terrified,
When he call'd me to his bedside as I sail'd.

And unto me did say, see me die, see me die.
And unto me did say, see me die, see me die.
And unto me did say, take a warning now by me,
There comes a reckoning day, you must die.
