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..
