Queen Anne’s Revenge

He’s ruled the seas for just two years
A short time to become feared
And make a name of Blackbeard
Queen Anne’s War, a privateer
Fights and steals and instills fear
6 foot 6, an imposing sight
You know that you’re in for a fight

Personal combat on Maynard’s boat
27 wounds and a stab of the throat
Queen Anne’s revenge! In Ocracoke

With beard aflame, he boards your ship
And with six loaded pistols, shoots from the hip
Fear soon spreads throughout the land
For his head there is demand
Charles Town harbor, big surprise
A four ship siege for medical supplies
(Guess why they got sick!)

Personal combat on Maynard’s boat
27 wounds and a stab of the throat
Queen Anne’s revenge! In Ocracoke

In Virginia, the Governour
Knows it’s time to declare war
Going above the king’s head
To make sure that Blackbeard’s dead
Recruits the Royal Navy’s best
And gives to them a simple goal
Have No Mercy on his soul

Personal combat on Maynard’s boat
27 wounds and a stab of the throat
Queen Anne’s revenge! In Ocracoke

Out of greed he sinks his own ship
Sand on the deck so they don’t slip
In the Outer Banks there will be war
Time to settle an old score
The two men meet, Blackbeard dies
Around the ship his corpse swims three times
He had a true pirate’s demise

Personal combat on Maynard’s boat
27 wounds and a stab of the throat
Queen Anne’s revenge! In Ocracoke
