The Ballad of Bloody Billy Bones

This song was created for Game of Bands round 103 : "Under the Influence"

Lyrics:


Take what you can from me
Give nothin’ to the sea
And we make up in rage
For all the rum we drink
But we will sail the seas
Despite the lack of breeze

And we go as we please
We'll pillage all the Keys
This governor's daughter
Is a sight to see
I think i'll have my way
She's coming with me

Even a pirate
Needs time to relax
Away from flax and sacks

As long as you've known me
Have I ever let you down
So listen to me now
We're sailing for Tortuga

There in the distance
Man the guns
Bring her around
It's too late to run
The gov is none too happy
He's sent the navy
But all at once the crew yelled
They belted out "this is a mutiny"

They tied me up
And threw me overboard
Those greedy sons of whores

My first mate cried:
"He was a terror to the seas
and he won't pay his fees

No more
We'll wash our hands of him
So tie him by his limbs
And let the governor have this madman"

I sailed the bloody seven seas
I went as i pleased
And the world knew I’m Captain Bloody Billy Bones

Through brawn, back, and trade
My corpse will remain
Drunk with livid rage

In my eternal hell
I hear the ghosts all yell
Then Davy came to me
With a plea to deal
Go bring me all your crew
And all the rum they spew

I sailed the bloody seven seas
I went as i pleased
And the world knew I’m Captain Bloody Billy Bones

Through brawn, back, and trade
My corpse will remain
Drunk with livid rage

No hooten' or howler
No roses or flowers
No sadness for the man we once knew
He's been sent down to Davy
By the Queen's royal navy
What's left for his crew now to do

You thought me dead?
I've risen from the waves
Risen from my grave

And Davy Jones
He gave me just one task
To take my ship back

So prepare
For the slaughter that draws nigh
The squatters will all die

And I
Will claim my chance divine
to take back what is mine

And I sail the seven bloody seas
I went as i please
And the world will know my name I’m Captain Bloody Billy Bones

Through brawn, back, and trade
My corpse will remain
Drunk with livid rage

No hooten' or howler
No roses or flowers
no sadness for the men I once knew
They've been sent down to Davy
To their watery gravey
And replaced with a skeleton crew

You may call me a monster
But this world I will conquer
And my name they will scream when i am through

Bloody Billy Bones
