Johnny Cash – Highway Man tab
This is a modification of the other highway man tab on here, so if there are any they're on purpose. The other tab has a lot of little mistakes that just didn't sound right. If have any questions or corrections or anything, my e-mail is email@example.com. Intro: Bm7 Verse 1: (Willie Nelson) Bm7 A G Bm7 I was a highwayman, along the coach roads I did ride, A G D A Sword and pistol by my side, Em Bm7 A G Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade, Em Bm7 A G Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade, Bm7 A G A D The bastards hung me in the spring of twenty-five, G A But I am still alive Verse 2: (Kris Kristofferson) Bm7 A G Bm7 I was a sailor, I was born upon the tide, A G D A With the sea I did abide, Em Bm7 A G I sailed a schooner round the horn of Mexico, Em Bm7 A G I went aloft and furled the main sail in a blow, Bm7 A G A D And when the yard broke off they say that I got killed, G A But I am living still Verse 3: (Waylon Jennings) Bm7 A G Bm7 I was a dam builder, across a river long and wide, A G D A Where steel and water did collide, Em Bm7 A G A place called boulder on the wild Colorado, Em Bm7 A G I slipped and fell on the wet concrete below, Bm7 A G A D They buried me in that gray tomb that knows no sounds, G A But I am still around, Chorus: (All) D D/C# Bm7 G D/F# Em I'll always be around, and around, and around, and around, and around G A D Verse 4: (Johnny Cash) Bm7 A G Bm7 I'll fly a starship across the universe divide, A G D A And when I reach the other side, Em Bm7 A G I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can, Em Bm7 A G Perhaps I may become a highwayman again, Bm7 A G A D Or I may simply be a single drop of rain, G A But I will remain, Outro: (All) (same chords as bridge) D D/C# Bm7 A G D/F# Em And I'll be back again, and again, and again, and again, and again G A D A D (let D ring)
