I may be able to help. The Jolly Rogers are friends of mine and we have performed together quite often. Bad News: The group went their separate ways about a year or so ago. Good News: The last word I have is that they are going to perform together again - probably this fall.

"The Devil's Son" is an original piece of theirs. Some of it I know, but not all. What line is it that's giving you trouble? Maybe I can help.

You can hear this song at YouTube. Most of these lyrics were also posted at YouTube, but I straightened up the format, punctuation, etc.

As sung by The Jolly Rogers

1. His name was Teach when he came to Carolina.
Like a man possessed, he scoured the sea and the Devil called him son.

CHORUS: Blackbeard Teach, the demon of the sea.
Run, you sailors, run.
With a beard of flame and a heart of ice,
Blackbeard the Devil's son.

2. He shot his first mate in the hold one day; he said, "I don't give a damn.
If I don't kill someone now and then, you'll forget who I am."
He married a girl of fifteen years named Liza.
From across the town they heard her scream as he took her maidenhead.

3. Governor Spotswood cried, "I'll rid the world of Blackbeard.
One hundred pounds will buy his head and hell can have his soul."
From Portsmouth town there sailed a man named Maynard.
He did not come to save their lives; he came for bounty money.

4. Teach met his fate off the shores of Carolina.
A challenge rang across the waves: "You'll dance with death today."
Sabers bit and bullets flew and the ships drew side by side.
Blackbeard screamed like a cannon's roar, "It's a damn good day to die."

5. An ax, a sword, a bullet's burn; Blackbeard stood them all.
He spat at his killers through broken teeth: "You'll never take me alive."
Teach is gone; the seas are safe today,
But down in hell, the Devil's laughing 'cause Blackbeard's home to stay.
