The River Pirate

Near Fort Detroit I was bred and born,
And for Pyracy I値l die in scorn.
Can稚 keep a hearth on a soldiers pay
So I turned into a Renegade.
And when I知 dead and I知 gone to Hell,
The songs they値l sing and the tales they値l tell.
And every one will speak the truth.
He was a wild and a wicked youth.

As a young lad, I took a wife.
She be a beauty and dear as life.
So for to keep her in silk and lace,
I turned to robbin on the waterways.
Place my pyre on a lonely isle
And pray keep safe my wife and child
It is for them that I知 a renegade
And it will lead me to an early grave

I never robbed me a poor man yet,
But oh you trav値ers have cause to fret.
I rob the French and the English too.
If you池e on my river, then I値l rob you.
But our bold Captain, he saw my plight,
And launched a rescue by darkest night.
Crept through the jailyard and set me free,
We turned out backs on that hangin tree.

One dark night launched me into the fray.
We robbed a bateau tied at the quay.
Ten soldiers waited, true was their aim,
And I was taken away in chains.


Near Fort Detroit I was bred and born,
And for Pyracy I値l die in scorn.
On these Great Lakes and their waters cold,
I知 a River Pirate, now my story痴 told.

I知 a River Pirate, now my story痴 told.
