Roger McGuinn   Jolly Roger   written by Roger McGuinn/Jacques Levy

 Dm                                      G            Dm
The sun comes up on the Spanish sea  our homeland far behind us
                                     G               A7
Being hunted by the King's Navy it's sure he'd never find us
      Dm                                  C          G     Dm
Pull away me lads  O the Cardiff Rose and hoist the  Jolly Roger
Dm                                       G               Dm
We brought her into the looward wind and made for the Caribbean
Dm                                      G                A7
For thoughts of what it might have been destroys a human being
    Dm                                  G           Dm
But thoughts about the Spanish gold and learning to desire it
                                       G             A7
Can make a man so brash and bold he'll soon become a pirate
         Dm                                C         G      Dm
Pull away me lads of the Cardiff  Rose and hoist the Jolly Roger
Dm                                             G
Now a gleam came into the captain's eyes as he spied an English
Dm
clipper
                                           G              A7
She looks the perfect shape and size let's all aboard and strip her
    Dm                             G                Dm
We fired a shot across her bow and eased ourselves beside her
                                         G                     A7
With our keel as close as she'd allow we swung from the deck to ride
her
     Dm                                   C         G     Dm
Pull away me lads of the Cardiff Rose and hoist the Jolly Roger
Dm                                      G           Dm
Up she tumbles and starts to pitch  and signals for assistance
                                        G              A7
We tightened our hold another hitch and ended her resistance
Dm                                             G
Now there's many a day  on the Spanish  sea I served aboard that
Dm
raider

But we never did nothing more beautifully
         G           A7
Than the way that we belayed her
     Dm                                  C          G       Dm
Pull away me lads of the Cardiff Rose and hoist the Jolly Roger
Dm                                     G
Her hold was hot as St Elmo's fire her chests were filled with
Dm
treasure
                                     G                 A7
We took as much as we'd require then took more for our pleasure
     Dm
Now there's many a day on the Spanish Main
    G               Dm
But none I hold so  dear
                                 G           A7
As the happy day I first became a scurvy buccaneer
      Dm                                 C         G     Dm
Pull away me lads of the Cardif Rose and hoist the Jolly Roger
