Oh Finder hear, yet secret keep
A tale of valour, upon the deep
When privateers of Blackboots throng
And kingsmen three, and twenty strong
On these bright waters
Did they contend
Till bloody sunset
Marked the end

His doughty men, at bottom sleep
While we the kings bright booty keep
Yet fought they well
And that day claimed
The souls of twenty
And five were maimed
Blackboot himself from cannon fell
And his bold soul now rests in hell

Thirty men cut down to five
And now but three remain alive
We three shall now, to Boston Town
To Live there bye the good kings crowns
Yet least it mark us for the grave, our Blackboots Flag from battle saved
We now bury on yonder isle
May No Kingsman our flag defile!

If yea should seek our banner bold
That brave men trembled to behold
Seek yea the cairn on Indian Isle
Where chieftains bones are said to lie
Beneath The Cairn, will nothing be
But to Eastword paces three
May our black banner
Unfurled once more Bring gold
And riches to your shore

Rockin'N'Reelin'
I love it. It makes me think of Vikings really... Like "The Immigrant Song". Anyway, a few minor spelling errors as Pen already noted, otherwise a Reelin' poem...
'Cause, "We'll be Rockin' and Reelin',
the music we'll be Feelin'."
