THE BLOODY BUCCANEER

Aye, a Bloody Buccaneer he was,
A Bloody Buccaneer
But when Old Hickory needed fighting men,
Jean Lafitte was there.
Aye, Captain Lafitte was there
But when Old Hickory needed fighting men,
Jean Lafitte was there
Aye, a Bloody Buccaneer he was,
A Bloody Buccaneer

Aye, a Bloody Buccaneer he was,
A Bloody Buccaneer
In 1814, in New Orleans,
When defeat was very near
Old Hickory called for fighting men,
And Captain Lafitte was there.
Aye, Jean Lafitte was there
When Old Hickory called for fighting men,
Jean Lafitte was there
Aye, a Bloody Buccaneer he was,
A Bloody Buccaneer

Aye, a Bloody Buccaneer he was,
A Bloody Buccaneer
He sailed into Lake Ponchatrain,
The British he did not fear
He sank their ships and sailed out again,
That Bloody Buccaneer
Jean Lafitte was there,
Aye, Captain Lafitte was there.
Aye, a Bloody Buccaneer he was,
A Bloody Buccaneer

Aye, a Bloody Buccaneer he was,
A Bloody Buccaneer
The moon was bright on the Spanish Main
A seaman slipped into the waters clear
Captain Lafitte was laid to rest,
That Bloody Buccaneer
A seaman slipped into the waters clear
Jean Lafitte was laid to rest,
That Bloody Buccaneer
Aye, a Bloody Buccaneer he was,
A Bloody Buccaneer

Aye, a Bloody Buccaneer he was,
A Bloody Buccaneer
So when you toast your heroes,
And perhaps shed a tear,
Drink ye one toast for a sailor boy,
Jean Lafitte was there,
Aye, Captain Lafitte was there.
Aye, a Bloody Buccaneer he was,
A Bloody Buccaneer

Aye, a Bloody Buccaneer he was,
A Bloody Buccaneer
When the dogs of war besiege our land
And it seems the end is near
Jean Lafitte will be there,
Aye, Captain Lafitte will be there
Aye, a Bloody Buccaneer he was,
A Bloody Buccaneer
And though it be only in spirit,
His courage we all shall share
Though a Bloody Buccaneer he was
A Bloody Buccaneer.

Aye, Jean Lafitte,
A Bloody Buccaneer he was,
A Bloody Buccaneer


An extract from my eBook, Poetry of "Passion," an autobiography in verse.

I agree with Karen about the song. I was almost singing it as I read. Like the history about Lake Ponchatrain, too. I will think of this each time I cross it, now.
Thanks, Vicky
