Description

"Former men have no memoirs!" -- so say the most skeletal pirates ever to plunder Kentucky, and that's the saying for Pirates of Kentucky. Aboard your ferry you'll see the images of pirates who have gone to Davey Jones, and watch as others fail to make friends in an unwelcoming village. Scenes include:

Theme Song

The Pirates of Kentucky theme song is often misheard. It begins:

No Joe, no Joe, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we burgles and thiefs,
Jump up me hearties, no Joe.
We kidnap and ravage and don't wash our briefs,
Jump up me hearties, no Joe.

No Joe, no Joe, a pirate's life for me.
