Description

"Eyepatched men write nice letters containing no diaries!" -- so say the smelliest pirates ever to plunder Kentucky, and that's the motto for Pirates of Kentucky.

Theme Song

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

Foe show, foe show, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we strum and we pluck,
Drink up me hearties, foe show.
We kidnap and ravage and make a quick buck,
Drink up me hearties, foe show.

Foe show, foe show, a pirate's life for me.
