My Name Is Captain Kidd

Kimberly gave me Great Big Sea's latest release, The Hard & The Easy. The whole album is fantastic, and includes a song about a man who's glad his mermaid girlfriend left him, because now he can be with her sister, whose top half is fish but whose bottom half is girl. ("That's how I get my tail.") But the finest tune of all, I believe, is Captain Kidd. Here's a link to a video of Captain Kidd, which has wonderful Newfoundland images, but the images don't fit the song. So just minimize your media player and listen to the tune. It's amazing. Lyrics can be found here. And after you do that, the video's worth watching too.
