The Lyrics

Ride, Captain Ride was listed as originally released in 1970, although lead guitarist Mike Pinera left the Blues Image in 1969 for Iron Butterfly
Seventy-three men dropped in
on the Taleban today,
Jumped off of their plane,
and here's what they had to say.

We're callin' everyone to fly along
to another shore
We can bomb their caves away
and be free once more.

But no one saw them comin',
no one knew at all,
'cause they were too busy watchin'
those old bomblets fall.

As a jet was flyin'
Out over Indian Sea,
Seventy-three main took off
for history.

Ride, airborne ride
upon your mystery ship
Be amazed at the friends
you have here on your trip.

Ride, airborne ride
upon your mystery ship
On your way to a place
our people just won't miss.

[instrumental]

Ride, airborne ride
upon your mystery ship
Be amazed at the friends
you have here on your trip.

Ride, airborne ride
upon your mystery ship
On your way to a place
our people just won't miss.

Ride, airborne ride
upon your mystery ship
Be amazed at the friends
you have here on your trip.
