JOHN PAUL JONES

When John Paul Jones was a little boy he pointed to the sea
Said when I get to be a man a fightin' man I'll be
I'll leave my mark on the ocean and my name in history
When John Paul was a member of the British Admiralty
He killed a sailor on his ship which was a crime you see
He changed his name to JP Jones and came to Amerik-e


He fought in the rain and he fought in the sun and he fought in the moonlight too
He fought with his knife and he fought with his gun
And he fought till his blood ran through
Well John Paul Jones was a fightin' man a fightin' man was he
He sailed to the east and he sailed to the west and he helped set America free

[ banjo ]


When JohnPaul was a Captain in the US Naval Band
A fightin' for the glory and the freedom of our land
He made those British captains wish that they were on dry land
He sent their mighty vessels to the bottom of the sea
He took their bags of treasure and he sank their chests of Tea
He gave his blood for all free men and his life for liberty


He fought in the rain and he fought in the sun and he fought in the moonlight too
He fought with his knife and he fought with his gun
And he fought till his blood ran through
Well John Paul Jones was a fightin' man a fightin' man was he
He sailed to the east and he sailed to the west and he helped set America free

[ banjo ]


He fought in the rain and he fought in the sun and he fought in the moonlight too
He fought with his knife and he fought with his gun
And he fought till his blood ran through
Well John Paul Jones was a fightin' man a fightin' man was he
He sailed to the east and he sailed to the west and he helped set America free
