Captain Kids - Cowboy Junkies

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
and welcome
and the open door

Farewell to London town and the pretty girls around
Farewell to London town and the pretty girls around
My friends
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
