John Paul Jones
Recorded by Johnny Horton
written by Jimmie Driftwood

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
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
