John Paul Jones

Song Author Jimmie Driftwood Performer: Johnny Horton Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]When John Paul Jones was a little boy he pointed to the sea
Said when I get to be a man a [Am]fighting man I'll [C]be  
I'll leave my mark on the ocean and my [G7]name in histo[C]ry  

When John Paul was a member of the British Admiralty
He killed a sailor on his ship which was a [Am]crime you [C]see  
He changed his name to JP Jones and [G7]came to Ameri[C]ke  


He fought in the rain and he fought in the sun
And he [F]fought in the moonlight [Am]too   
He [C]fought with his knife and he fought with his gun
And he [F]fought till his blood ran [Am]through
[C]Well John Paul Jones was a fighting man a [Am]fighting man was [C]he  

He sailed to the east and he sailed to the west
And he helped set [G7]America [C]free


When John Paul was a Captain in the US Naval Band
A fighting for the glory and the [Am]freedom of our [C]land
He made those British captains wish that they [G7]were on dry [C]land

He sent their mighty vessels to the bottom of the sea
He took their bags of treasure and he [Am]sank their chests of [C]Tea  
He gave his blood for all free men and his [G7]life for liber[C]ty  


He fought in the rain and he fought in the sun
And he [F]fought in the moonlight [Am]too   
He [C]fought with his knife and he fought with his gun
And he [F]fought till his blood ran [Am]through
[C]Well John Paul Jones was a fighting man a [Am]fighting man was [C]he  

He sailed to the east and he sailed to the west
And he helped set [G7]America [C]free


When John Paul Jones was a little boy he pointed to the sea
Said when I get to be a man a fighting man I'll be
I'll leave my mark on the ocean and my name in history

When John Paul was a member of the British Admiralty
He killed a sailor on his ship which was a crime you see
He changed his name to JP Jones and came to Amerike

He fought in the rain and he fought in the sun
And he fought in the moonlight too
He fought with his knife and he fought with his gun
And he fought till his blood ran through
Well John Paul Jones was a fighting man a fighting man was he

He sailed to the east and he sailed to the west
And he helped set America free

When John Paul was a Captain in the US Naval Band
A fighting for the glory and the freedom of our land
He made those British captains wish that they were on dry land

He sent their mighty vessels to the bottom of the sea
He took their bags of treasure and he sank their chests of Tea
He gave his blood for all free men and his life for liberty

He fought in the rain and he fought in the sun
And he fought in the moonlight too
He fought with his knife and he fought with his gun
And he fought till his blood ran through
Well John Paul Jones was a fighting man a fighting man was he

He sailed to the east and he sailed to the west
And he helped set America free
