Song: “Rachel Wall’s Last Good-Night”

I wrote this song in honor of Rachel Wall, pirate, murderer, thief, and half of the cutest couple in the history of seafaring serial killers. The tune is my own adaptation, based on “The Bold Soldier” as sung by Lena Bourne Fish.

Rachel Wall was hanged at Boston, on October 8, 1789, aged about twenty-nine. Find more details here: and here:…pirate/
