Great Big Sea 
"Ballad Of Captain Kidd"

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

My father taught me well to shun the gates of hell, 
But against him I rebelled, as I sailed; 
He shoved a bible in my hand, but I left it in the sand, 
And I pulled away from land as I sailed (...).
