Theme Song

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

Jo jo, jo jo, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we dig through and root,
Open up me hearties, jo jo.
We kidnap and ravage and don't give a hoot,
Open up me hearties, jo jo.

Jo jo, jo jo, a pirate's life for me.
