  • Michelle Shocked
  • (Poly Gram Songs, Inc)
  • Remembering back when I was a kid, I'd slip down to the docks
  • To watch the old men carving wood, watch the sailors tying knots
  • But the thing I remember best was grey-haired old Patch-Eye
  • And the stories that he'd tell me 'bout his younger days
  • as we watched those ships go by hfill
  • He'd talk about his missing eye, he'd talk all about his wooden leg
  • But he never talked about the old tattoo on his right arm that said ''Meg''
  • He said he was captain of a pirate ship sailing seas both blue and green
  • Then he said that all pirate's got to have have a patch so as they
  • can look real mean
  • He'd made the bad guys walk the plank, the pretty ladies he would save
  • And then he'd take the treasure from the ship and then he'd sink it
  • to a watery grave
  • He'd talk about his missing eye, he'd talk about his wooden leg
  • But he'd never talk about the old tattoo of brown-haired,
  • blue-eyed Meg
  • He told me a story 'bout his wooden leg as he sat there spinning yarns
  • Once he lost it to a mamba snake, down in the Amazon
  • Another time it was way out west in a gunfight, or so he said
  • Oh but that's all right boy, man's got to legs, you know he could have
  • lost his head
  • He told me all about his missing eye, he told me all about his wooden leg
  • But he took the story to the grave about the tattoo
  • that said ''Meg''
  • He told me how he lost his eye and how he lost leg
  • But he never told me how he lost the love of brown-haired,
  • blue-eyed Meg
