Highwayman
By The Highwaymen
Capo 2

Am7     G                    F                 Am7
I was a highwayman along the coach roads I did ride
G              F      C     G
with sword and pistol by my side
Dm     Am7                 G             Am
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade. 
Dm     Am7              G               Am
Many a soldier lost his lifeblood on my blade.
Am7          G              F         G C
The bastards hung me in the spring of '25
    F           G
But I am still alive.

Am7     G             F             Am7
I was a sailor; I was born upon the tide
G        F     C   G
with the sea I did abide
Dm         Am7                G           Am
I sailed a schooner round the horn of Mexico
Dm     Am7                G             Am
I went aloft to 'furl the mainsail in a 'blow
Am7          G                    F         G     C
and when the yards broke off they said that I got killed
    F           G
But I am living still.

 
Am7         G                  F              Am7
I was a dam builder across the river deep and wide
G               F     C      G
where steel and water did collide
Dm             Am7            G        Am
A place called Boulder on the wide Colorado
Dm            Am7           G              Am
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below
Am7         G                F         G        C
They buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound
    F          G
But I am still around
               C          G       Am       G          F  C Dm
I'll always be around and around and around and around and around

F   G   C

Am7     G                   F        Am7
I fly a starship across the universe divide
G          F         C     G
and when I reach the other side
Dm          Am7              G           Am
I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can
Dm        Am7          G           Am
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again
Am7      G           F      G       C
or I may simply be a single drop of rain
    F        G
But I will remain
                 C         G      Am       G         F  C Dm
and I'll be back again and again and again and again and again

F   G   C
