Who Sang Captain Morgan? Tempest

Release information
Release Date: 1991
length: 4:35
Lend an ear and listen to me
Of my life, the song of the sea
I came from Wales, a soldier I was sworn
Discharged from the army - a pirate was born
I fought on sea, I fought on dry land
With 40 ships on my command
My fleet was painted with black sails
My men made hell with sword in hand

I'm captain Morgan the pirate
The greatest Buccaneer
I'm captain Morgan the pirate
I have no fear

The sound of swords as it slices the air
The sea wind tosses my jet black hair
We drank and we swore in the gull's gleaming light
After red rum in the chill in the night
Oh, terror strikes deep in the heart of fools
A human life ain't worth a casket of jewels
The booty was slim in that city of gold
And I lost many of my men brave and bold

I'm captain Morgan the pirate
The greatest Buccaneer
I'm captain Morgan the pirate
I have no fear

Muskets were fired, the cannonballs roared
The spaniards were captured by pirates at war
I swept the carribean like a b***** hurricane
But I stood trial and they put me in chains
As governor of Jamaica, I went against my own
I hanged my men and their skulls and crossbones
The bottle became my last company
I never again heard the song of the sea

I'm captain Morgan the pirate
The greatest Buccaneer
I'm captain Morgan the pirate
I have no fear
I had no fear
