Highwaymen  American remains

Capo: on first fret (1)

Verse: 1  (Johnny Cash)

Am				          F
I am a shotgun rider for the San Jacinto line
       C	                                  G
The desert is my brother, my skin is cracked and dry
   Am					        F
I was riding on a folk coach, and everything was fine
C				     G
Til we took a shorter road to save some time
         F				         C
The bandits only fired once, they shot me in the chest
C						     G
They  may have wounded me, but they`ll never get the best
          Am	 		
Of better men, cause I`ll ride again.


Verse: 2 (Waylon Jennings)

Am				             F
I am a river gambler, I make a livin`dealin cards
C						         G
My clothes are smooth and honest, my heart is cold and hard
Am					        F
I was shufflin` for some delta boys on the boat for New Orelans
C				     G
I was the greatest shark they`d ever seen
F				         C
But the Captain bumped a sandbar, and an ace fell from my sleeve
C					     G
The threw me overboard as I swore I didn`t cheat
        Am
But I could swim, and I`ll ride again

Chorus

C					G
We are heros of the homeland, American remains
F			        Am
We live in many faces and answer many names
      C				            G
We will not be forgotten, we won`t be left behind
 F				  G
Our memories live on in mortal minds
  	    Am		         
And poets pens, we`ll ride again




Verse: 3 (Willie Nelson)
Am				                 F
I am a mid-west farmer, I make a livin` off the land
 C				             G
I ride a John Deer tractor, I`am a liberated man
Am					        F
But the rain it hasn`t fallen, since the middle of July
C				        G
And if it don`t come soon my crops will die
F				         C
The bank man says he likes me, but there`s nothin`he can do
C					                G
He tells me that he`s comin`, but the clounds are comin` too
    		Am	
He ain`t my friend, and I`ll ride again.


Verse: 4 (Kris Kristofferson)

Am		                     F
I am an American Indian, my tribe is Cherokee
       C				             G
My forefathers loves this land they left it here for me
   	Am					        F
But the white man came with boats and trains and dirty factories
C				     G
And poisoned my existence with his deeds
F				         C
Nature is our mother, we are suckling at her breast
C						       G
And he who trys to beat her down will lose her to the rest
  	      Am	
They`ll never win, I`ll ride again


Chorus:

C					G
We are heros of the homeland, American remains
F			        Am
We live in many faces and answer many names
      C						G
We will not be forgotten, we won`t be left behind
        F				     G
Our memories live on in mortal minds
  	      Am		         
And poets pens we`ll ride again
