 Calico Jack

 Transcription by erikgotborn@hotmail.com (erik gotborn)

 Taken from the album "Port Royal".

 Some riffs are played with muted strings, and I haven’t count how many
 times they play on every chord in some of them, so you have to listen to
 the record. I haven’t figured out how to the intro is played, if someone
 know, please e-mail it to me.

 Calico Jack

 Riff 1 x1
 Riff 2 x4
 Riff 3 x2
 Up with the roger, the vessel is close
 Cannons are loaded, the weapons prepared
 Set up more sails the distance grows
 They try to escape but we shan’t care

 Riff 4 x1
 Riff 5 x2
         Calico Jack Listen and hear my command
         Calico Jack I lead you to victory
         Calico Jack We shall win in the end
         Calico Jack You may believe what I forsee

 Riff 6 x1
 Riff 3 x2
 Down with the roger, the vessel’s too far
 It’s time for the red flag, no remorse
 Anne and Mary, more rum in my jar
 I need more refreshments before we set course

 Riff 4 x1
 Riff 7 x4
 Changing the course now, we must get in touch
 Triple afford, he must not escape
 Our breath in their neck they feel our grudge
 We have to hurry to get them in scrape

 Riff 8 x2
 Fight

 Riff 9a x1
 Riff 9b x1
 Riff 9a x1
 Riff 9c x1
 Riff 10 x1
 Riff 11 x4
 Riff 12 x4
 Riff 13 x4
 Acrid smell of smoke in the air
 White flag’s rising, mainmast breaks
 Ears go deaf by my brother’s blare
 Upper deck is taken over

 Riff 14 x1
 Riff 13 x2
 All of a sudden a yelling cry
 Ports turn open what a mess
 Soldiers get out ‘n’ comrades die
 Desperate fights, we’re on the loose

 Riff 14 x2
 Riff 15 x15
 John Rackham
 You are charged with murder and piracy on the high seas
 In the name of Her Majesty you will be taken from this court
 And hung, drawn and quarted
 What are your last words?

 My last words? Ha ha!!
 Who do you think you are?!
 What right have you to judge over my destiny?!
 Take your pompous words and stick ‘em up were the sun don’t shine
 I swear we meet again
 Bye

 Riff 16 x8
 Riff 17 x4
 Riff 2 x4
 Riff 18 x1
