Highwayman

	  		Verse 1: (Willie) 
Bm7            A              G                 Bm7 
I was a highwayman, along the coach roads I did ride, 
A         G            A 
Sword and pistol by my side, 
Em     Bm                   A            Em 
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade, 
Em     Bm                A              Em 
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade, 
Bm7          A              G         Bm7 
The basterds hung me in the spring of 25, 
D               A 
But I am still alive 
 
Verse 2: (Waylon) 
I was a sailor, I was born upon the tide, 
With the sea I did abide, 
I sailed a schooner round the horn of Mexico, 
I went aloft and furled the main sail in a blow, 
And when the yard broke off they say that I got killed, 
But I am living still 
 
Verse 3: (Johnny) 
I was a dam builder, across a river long and wide, 
Where steel and water did collide, 
A place called bolder on the wild Colorado, 
I slipped and fell on the wet concrete below, 
They buried me in that gray tomb that knows no sounds, 
But I am still around, 
 
Bridge Thingy: (All) 
                D           D/C#        Bm7         A           G    D/F# Em 
I'll always be around, and around, and around, and around, and around 
 
Verse 4: (Johnny) 
I'll fly a starship across the universe divide, 
And when I reach the other side, 
I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can, 
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again, 
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain, 
But I will remain, 
 
Outro: (All) (same chords as bridge) 
And I'll be back again, and again, and again, and again, and again
