Sand in the Rum

Sand in the Rum, me boys, Sand in the Rum
He who live by cutlass die by men who live by gun
Sand in the Rum, me boys, Sand in the Rum
We raise a glass to Heaven, but the other kingdom come

The captains only daughter be the apple of his eye
But stowaways have made their bed and under sea they lie
Our lucks all gone to Davey since the Devil smelled her here
That woman be our ruin and there's Sand in the Rum


Sand in the Rum, me boys, Sand in the Rum
He who live by cutlass die by men who live by gun
Sand in the Rum, me boys, Sand in the Rum
We raise a glass to Heaven, but the other kingdom come

The captains gone a-missin' somewhere in this very sea
The kracken's mighty tentacles are comin' after me
Make wake for shallow water, 'fore the Devil knows we're gone
There's trouble brewin' 'neath us and there's Sand in the Rum


Sand in the Rum, me boys, Sand in the Rum
He who live by cutlass die by men who live by gun
Sand in the Rum, me boys, Sand in the Rum
We raise a glass to Heaven, but the other kingdom come

There's dry rot on the mizzen mast and splinters on the deck
Damn the man a thousand times what got us on this wreck
We'll never make it out alive, the Devil's under sea
But there's luck on the horizon and Sand in the Rum


Sand in the Rum, me boys, Sand in the Rum
He who live by cutlass die by men who live by gun
Sand in the Rum, me boys, Sand in the Rum
We raise a glass to Heaven, but the other kingdom come

The Bo'sun's skin's a-boilin' red and all his blisters bleed
This be a gypsy curse returned and comin' after me
That woman be the Devil, she'll repay you for your sins
There's poison in the apples and there's Sand in the Rum


Sand in the Rum, me boys, Sand in the Rum
He who live by cutlass die by men who live by gun
Sand in the Rum, me boys, Sand in the Rum
We raise a glass to Heaven, but the other kingdom come
