John Paul Jones Recorded by Johnny Horton written by Jimmie Driftwood
C When John Paul Jones was a little boy he pointed to the sea Am C Said when I get to be a man a fighting man I'll be G7 C I'll leave my mark on the ocean and my name in history
When John Paul was a member of the British Admiralty Am C He killed a sailor on his ship which was a crime you see G7 C He changed his name to JP Jones and came to Amerike
He fought in the rain and he fought in the sun F Am And he fought in the moonlight too C He fought with his knife and he fought with his gun F Am And he fought till his blood ran through C Am C Well John Paul Jones was a fighting man a fighting man was he
He sailed to the east and he sailed to the west G7 C And he helped set America free
When John Paul was a Captain in the US Naval Band Am C A fighting for the glory and the freedom of our land G7 C He made those British captains wish that they were on dry land
He sent their mighty vessels to the bottom of the sea Am C He took their bags of treasure and he sank their chests of Tea G7 C He gave his blood for all free men and his life for liberty
