Blackbeard's Pirate Psalm

Today is speak like a Pirate Day. Aarg!
I wonder how Blackbeard would have written the 23rd psalm....

Pirate psalm Aarg!

The Lord is me Cap’n
An' I ain’t wantin’ nuthin’.
He shivers me timbers,
An' sails me through blistering barnacles.
He refreshes me rum
An' guides me
To Spanish galleons
For his booty. Aarg!

Even though I walk the plank
Over shark-infested waters,
I ain’t afeared,
For my Cap’n is wi’ me,
Along wi' the bo’sun
An' first mate. Aarg!

He gets ready the mainsail
An' broadsides the enemy,
The deck o’erflows
Wi’ powder 'n' blood.

Surely pillage 'n' plunder
Will be my pirate life,
An' I will dwell in
Davey Jones’ Locker
Forevermore. Aarg!
