lyrics

Cpt. James Pinto

Old timey sailor man
Went down to the harbour below
Waiting for the ship's return
To bring the bounty home
And the water seems black
And the water seems cold
And the wind won't stop to blow
Singing...

Weary eyes from all he's seen
On the Atlantic where the tide called him home
Sailor by the name Cpt. James Pinto
Like a steed he rose to the conquering know
And the waves it did crash
And the sun it did burn
And the cities had started to bow
Singing...

A strong heroic heart and a steady hand
That's what the men did seek
As the battles did rose and the cities did sink
They fought a divided fleet
And the men they stood strong
And the captain grew weak
His fire blown out by the wind
Singing...

And so, with his sword drawn
They pushed him away
And so, he came to the edge
And the end of his days
And so, he went on his knees
And he started to pray
And he said,
Farewell
It's time for me to go...
