Blackbeard by The Beatles

Picture of Edward Teach, aka Blackbeard the Pirate

Blackbeard singing in the dead of night
Take this sunken chest and find the key
All your life
You were only searching for some victims on the sea

Blackbeard fly, Blackbeard fly
Be that a rich galleon you spy?
Blackbeard fly, Blackbeard fly
Don’t walk the plank or you may die

Blackbeard singing in the dead of night
Take nine-pounder guns and learn to shoot
All your life
You were only waiting for some merchantmen to loot

You were only waiting for some merchantmen to loot
You were only waiting for some merchantmen to loot

© 1968 Lennon, McCartney & Jolly Ned Teach of Bristol
