The Petticoat Pirate

Joe Sharp
Stra'ven, Scotland

Sailing home from trade with Spain
An English vessel in the rain
Attacked and boarded their single-masted ship
Could this be the end to their Spanish trading trip

Grace was then just twelve years old
But she was brave and she was bold
Leaping from the rigging and joining in the fray
The petticoated pirate chased the Englishmen away

With full sail billowing with satisfied pleasure
A cargo of silk and silver Spanish treasures
With the sun going down at the end of the day
The little ship anchored in lovely Clew Bay
