Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Highway Man  Johnny Cash

[Bm7]I was a [A]highwayman, along the [G]coach roads I did [Bm7]ride,
[A]Sword and [G]pistol [D]by my [A]side,
[Em]Many a [Bm7]young maid lost her [A]baubles to [G]my trade,
[Em]Many a [Bm7]soldier shed his [A]lifeblood on my [G]blade,
[Bm7]The bastards [A]hung me in the [G]spring of [A]twenty-[D]five,
But [G]I am still a[A]live

Verse 2: (Kris Kristofferson)
[Bm7]I was a [A]sailor, I was [G]born upon the [Bm7]tide,
[A]With the [G]sea I [D]did ab[A]ide,
[Em]I sailed a [Bm7]schooner round the [A]horn of Mexi[G]co,
[Em]I went a[Bm7]loft and furled the [A]main sail in a [G]blow,
[Bm7]And when the [A]yard broke off [G]they say t[A]hat I g[D]ot killed,
But [G]I am living [A]still

Verse 3: (Waylon Jennings)
[Bm7]I was a dam bui[A]lder, across a [G]river long and wid[Bm7]e,
[A]Where stee[G]l and water [D]did coll[A]ide,
[Em]A place[Bm7] called boulder on t[A]he wild Col[G]orado,
[Em]I slipped and [Bm7]fell on the [A]wet concrete be[G]low,
[Bm7]They buried m[A]e in that gray [G]tomb that [A]knows no [D]sounds,
But [G]I am still a[A]round,

Chorus: (All)
I'll alway[G]s be [D/F#]aroun[Em]d, and around, and around, and around, and around

[G]   [A]   [D]                               
Verse 4: (Johnny Cash)
[Bm7]I'll fly a [A]starship across the [G]universe di[Bm7]vide,
[A]And when I [G]reach the [D]other [A]side,
[Em]I'll find a [Bm7]place to rest my [A]spirit if I [G]can,
[Em]Perhaps I [Bm7]may become a [A]highwayman [G]again,
[Bm7]Or I may [A]simply be a [G]single [A]drop of [D]rain,
[G]But I will re[A]main,

Outro: (All) (same chords as bridge)
And I'll[G] be b[D/F#]ack a[Em]gain, and again, and again, and again, and again

G A D A D (let D ring)
