(Willie)
Bm        A         G                     A     Bm
I was a highwayman. Along the coach roads I did ride
A                 G            A
   With 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
   The bastards hung me, in the spring of twenty-five
G                  A
    But I am still alive.

(Kris)
Bm        A             G    A        Bm
  I was a sailor. I was born upon the tide
A              G         A
  And with the sea I did abide.
Em           Bm                 A       G
  I sailed a schooner round the Horn to Mexico
Em        Bm                  A             G
  I went aloft and furled the mainsail in a blow
Bm             A                     G         A      D
  And when the yards broke off, they said that I got killed
    G           A
But I am living still.

(Waylon)
Bm         A                       G              Bm
   I was a dam builder. Across the river deep and wide.
A                 G         A
  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          A       D                    
  They buried me, in that great tomb that knows no sound
    G          A
But I am still around.
A               D          Bm      A   G  F#m   Em       B>C#>D
 I'll always be around and around............

(Johnny)
Bm         A                   G           Bm
   I fly a starship across the Universe divide
A           G               A
 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      A       D  
  Or I may simply be a single drop of rain
G               A
But I, will remain
                 D          Bm              
And I'll be back again, and again 
    A         G         F#m       Em  B>C#>D
and again and again and again..
