The Highwayman

Jimmy Webb / the Highwaymen (J. Cash et.al.): Highwayman (1985)

Intro: |: Bm A G A :|
Verse 1: (Willie Nelson / Martin)
Bm A / / G / / / Bm7 / / / A / G / A / / /
I was a highwayman, along the coach roads I did ride, Sword and pistol by my side,
Em / Bm / A / G / / /
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade,
Em / Bm / A / G / / /
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade,
Bm / A / G A D / | / / / / A / / / | / / / /
The basterds hung me in the spring of twenty-five, But I am still alive...
Verse 2: (Kris Kristofferson / Klausdieter)
Bm A G Bm7 A G A
I was a sailor, I was born upon the tide, With the sea I did abide,
Em Bm A G
I sailed a schooner round the horn of Mexico,
Em Bm A G
I went aloft and furled the main sail in a blow,
Bm A G Bm D A
And when the yards broke off they said that I've got killed, But I am living still...
Verse 3: (Waylon Jennings / Jürgen)
Bm A G Bm7 A G A
I was a dam builder, across the river deep and wide, Where steel and water did collide,
Em Bm A G
A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado,
Em Bm A G
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below,
Bm A G Bm D A
They buried me in that gray tomb that knows no sounds, But I am still around...
A D D/C# Bm7 A G D/F# Em / / / G A D
I'll always be around, and around, and around, and around, and around
solo: |: Bm A G A :|
Verse 4: (Johnny Cash / Peter)
Bm A G Bm7 A G A
I'll fly a starship 'cross the universe divide, And when I reach the other side,
Em Bm A G
I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can,
Em Bm A G
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again,
Bm A G Bm D A
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain, But I will remain...
A D D/C# Bm7 A G D/F# Em / / / G A D
And I'll be back again, and again, and again, and again, and again
