The Highwaymen  Highwayman
Capo fret 2.

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

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

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

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