The Captains And The Kings lyrics and guitar chords. Written by Brendan Behan while having a satirical look at the British way of life. Ronnie Drew sure does this song justice. The guitar chords are courtesy of Marc Fahrbach.

I re(G)member in Sep(C)tember when the (D7)final stumps were (G)drawn

And the shouts of crowds now (C)silent when the (D)boisterous cheer had (G)gone

Let (D)us O Lord a(A)bove us re(A7)member simple (D)things

When (G)all are dead to (C)love us, Oh, the (D)captains and the (G)Kings

When (G)all are dead to (C)love us, Oh, the (D)captains and the (G)Kings

 

We have (G)many goods for (C)export Christian (D7)ethics and old (G)port

But our greatest boast is (C)that the Anglo-(D)Saxon is a (G)sport

When the (D)dart's game is (A)finished and the (A7)boys there game of (D)rings

And the (G)draft and chests were (C)linghuised, Oh, the (D)captains and the (G)Kings

And the (G)draft and chests were (C)relinghuised, Oh, the (D)captains and the (G)Kings

 

Far a(G)way in dear old (C)Cyprus or in (D7)Kenya's dusty (G)land

Where all bear the white mans (C)burden in (D)many a strange (G)land

As we (D)looked across our (A)shoulder in West-(A7)Belfast the school-bell (D)rings

And we (G)sigh for dear old (C)England, and the (D)captains and the (G)Kings

And we (G)sigh for dear old (C)England, and the (D)captains and the (G)Kings

 

In our (G)dreams we see old (C)Harrow and we (D7)hear the crow's loud (G)caw

At the flower show our big (C)marrow take's the (D)pride from evilyn and (G)waugh

Cups of (D)tea and some dry (A)sherry vintage (A7)car's, these simple (D)things

So let's (G)drink up and be (C)merry for the (D)captains and the (G)Kings

So let's (G)drink up and be (C)merry for the (D)captains and the (G)Kings

 

As I (G)wandered in a (C)nightmare all a(D7)round great Windsor (G)Park

Now what do you think I (C)found there as I (D)wandered in the (G)dark?

'Twas an (D)apple half (A)bitten and (A7)sweetest of all (D)things

Five (G)baby teeth had (C)written of the (D)captains and the (G)Kings

Five (G)baby teeth had (C)written of the (D)captains and the (G)Kings

 

By the (G)moon that shine's a(C)bove us in the (D7)misty mornin' (G)night

Let us cease to run our(C)self down and praise (D)God that we are (G)white

And (D)lettuce still are (A)English, tea and (A7)toast and muffin (D)rings

And old (G)ladies with stained (C)faces and the (D)captains and the (G)kings

And old (G)ladies with stained (C)faces and the (D)captains and the (G)kings
