Highwayman

(Willie nelson, kris kristoffersonm waylon jennings e johnny cash)

	  		
Bm7     A                    G                 Bm7  
I was a highwayman along the coach roads I did ride  
A              G      D     A  
with 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 lost his lifeblood on my blade.  
Bm7          A              G         A D  
The bastards hung me in the spring of '25  
    G           A  
But I am still alive.  
  
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 to 'furl the mainsail in a 'blow  
Bm7          A                    G         A     D  
and when the yards broke off they said that I got killed  
    G           A  
But I am living still.  
  
   
Bm7         A                  G              Bm7  
I was a dam builder across the river deep and wide  
A               G     D      A  
where steel and water did collide  
Em             Bm7            A        G  
A place called Boulder on the wide Colorado  
Em            Bm7           A              G  
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below  
Bm7         A                G         A        D  
They buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound  
    G          A  
But I am still around  
               D          D/C#        Bm7       A          G  D/F# Em  
I'll always be around and around and around and around and around  
G   A   D  
  
Bm7     A                   G        Bm7  
I 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  
                 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
