Halloween Countdown Day 8: Captain Fearless

Captain Fearless

The ghost of Captain Fearless still haunts this old dock
Listen close and you may hear his peg-legged walk
He wants a new sailor to head his ghost ship’s crew
Don’t come here at night or he might shanghai you

Thrown overboard by his mutinous first mate
His spirit kept alive by vengeance and hate
He haunted the crew and gave them such grief
They wound up crashing the ship on a reef

Now his ghost comes ashore on this sort of night
When the fog rolls in thick and the moon is just right
And wanders the dock looking for a first mate
If you hear him laugh, it’s already too late
