Fun and factual song from the "Horrible Histories" TV programme.


A                    D
When I was a nipper, I boarded a clipper, 
A                          E  
Sailed the seas as a goods importer, Oh! 
A                        D
Edward Teach is my name, but I earned my fame, 
   A              E             A  
As Blackbeard the pirate of the water, Oh! 

D                 A
Was a jolly chap, with a jaunty cap, 
Bm                       E 
Always gave my crew good quarter, Oh! 
A                       D
But I'm best known for, blood and guts and gore, 
      A                E             A                 
And a viscous reign of murdering and slaughter, Oh!
     
       A               D
 CREW: Best known for, blood and guts and gore, 
             A                E             A 
       And a viscous reign of murdering and slaughter, Oh! 

A                        D
Left my home in Bristol, with a sword and pistol, 
A                          E
Bid a fond farewell to ol' Blighty, Oh! 
A                       D
What my enemies feared, was my think black beard, 
A              E               A   
Which I always enjoyed setting light to, Oh!

D                        A                                              
Once I had a thing for a captive's lovely ring, 
     Bm                        E
That shone like a jewel in the nighty-oh! 
A                       D  
When the man said 'no', I just said 'oh,' 
    A              E              A
And chopped of his hand and said 'righty-oh!'
     
       A              D
 CREW: Man said 'No.' He said 'Oh,'
       A              E              A 
       Chopped of his hand and said 'righty-oh!'

*******************************************
Oh, I love to sail the ocean, 
With my flag that inspired emotion,
   Crew: With its smiling pile of skull and bones, 
   Smashing hearts with a violent, stabbing motion. 
And I love to escape detection,
And to win my crew's affection.
   Crew: Which was nothing to do with the twelve guns he wore 
   On his belt that were for protection.
*******************************************

D                   A
I was awfully nice, but I had the odd vice,
Bm                         E
Which occasionally cause a commotion.
A                               D
The thing that I'd do was shoot members of my crew,
A              E           A
If they didn't show enough devotion.

       A                           D
 Crew: The thing he'd do was shoot members of the crew,
       A                   E      A
       If they didn't show enough devotion.

A                     D
Once when very Irate, I shot my first mate,
A                         E
Israel Hands for a bit of pleasure, Oh!
A                       D
And when my debts grew, killed half of my crew, 
A              E            A  
To increase my share of the treasure, Oh!

D                              A
Was doing well then, seemed to run out of men,
Bm                           E
My captives boarded at their leisure, Oh!
A                  D
Smote me dead then cut of my head,
    A                  E             A
And displayed it on my mast for good measure, Oh!

       A               D
 Crew: Smote him dead, chopped off his head,
       A                   E             A
       Displayed it on the mast for good measure, Oh!

Apologies for the lack of chords in the middle.
I'm still trying to find ones that work, so any additions would be fantablious. :)
(I currently do it A cappella in a Falsetto voice for giggles ;) )
