Fifteen men on a dead man's chest Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum Drink and the devil had done for the rest Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.

The mate was fixed by the bosun's pike The bosun brained with a marlinspike And cookey's throat was marked belike It had been gripped by fingers ten; And there they lay, all good dead men Like break o'day in a boozing ken. Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.

Fifteen men of the whole ship's list Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum! Dead and be damned and the rest gone whist! Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!

The skipper lay with his nob in gore Where the scullion's axe his cheek had shore And the scullion he was stabbed times four And there they lay, and the soggy skies Dripped down in up-staring eyes In murk sunset and foul sunrise Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.

Fifteen men of 'em stiff and stark Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum! Ten of the crew had the murder mark! Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!

Twas a cutlass swipe or an ounce of lead Or a yawing hole in a battered head And the scuppers' glut with a rotting red And there they lay, aye, damn my eyes Looking up at paradise All souls bound just contrariwise Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.

Fifteen men of 'em good and true Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum! Ev'ry man jack could ha' sailed with Old Pew, Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!

There was chest on chest of Spanish gold With a ton of plate in the middle hold And the cabins riot of stuff untold, And they lay there that took the plum With sightless glare and their lips struck dumb While we shared all by the rule of thumb, Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!

More was seen through a sternlight screen... Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum Chartings undoubt where a woman had been Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.

'Twas a flimsy shift on a bunker cot With a dirk slit sheer through the bosom spot And the lace stiff dry in a purplish blot Oh was she wench or some shudderin' maid That dared the knife and took the blade By God! she had stuff for a plucky jade Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.

Fifteen men on a dead man's chest Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum Drink and the devil had done for the rest Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.

We wrapped 'em all in a mains'l tight With twice ten turns of a hawser's bight And we heaved 'em over and out of sight, With a Yo-Heave-Ho! and a fare-you-well And a sudden plunge in the sullen swell Ten fathoms deep on the road to hell, Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!

as long as it is fully non-profit, non- commercial you can do that

This is spectacular work...

You know, I am desiging a pirate board game for a local homebrew board game contest (in Greece :P ) and I was looking for artwork that I could use. Would you allow me to use this?

This won't be commercial as the board games there will not be for sale and there won't even be prize money (the prizes are merely board games)... It will be printed in only the prototype of the game that will take part in the contest.

Really great work man.

If this is completely non commercial and only for the contest you can use it but please give credit in some way :)

I certainly will. At the very least I will give you credit in the Rulebook! And yes, it's completely non-commercial. I will only be speding money to take part :P The prizes they give away are board games via a lottery :P

Anyway, keep up your good work!!! Thanks again

I freaking love the pirate coves that are in giant ancient caves. They're so dark and shady and grimy and full of wonderful secrets.

Nice! I like it. The red glow from the rear windows of the closest ship is a nice effect.

This is pretty cool.  I love the colors that set the atmosphere, dark, murky, and I can almost smell the salt and the molde clinging to the sides of the cave and the rest of the environs, as well as the commotion from the dockside pubs. The ships look stylized, but pretty good, harkening back to the 1600s when a lot of minutely detailed ornamentation went into the final polish of the ship with the carvings along the molding of sailing ships at the time. The only thing that looks out of place is the fact that all of the ships are missing a mast or two.  All in all though, a beautiful piece.
