Highway Man

Johnny Cash

 Bm7AGBm7
 I was a highwayman, along the coach roads I did ride,
 AGDA
 Sword and pistol by my side,
 EmBm7AG
 Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade,
 EmBm7AG
 Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade,
 Bm7AGAD
 The bastards hung me in the spring of twenty-five,
 GA
But I am still alive

Verse 2: (Kris Kristofferson)
 Bm7AGBm7
 I was a sailor, I was born upon the tide,
 AGDA
 With the sea I did abide,
 EmBm7AG
 I sailed a schooner round the horn of Mexico,
 EmBm7AG
 I went aloft and furled the main sail in a blow,
 Bm7AGAD
 And when the yard broke off they say that I got killed,
 GA
But I am living still

Verse 3: (Waylon Jennings)
 Bm7AGBm7
 I was a dam builder, across a river long and wide,
 AGDA
 Where steel and water did collide,
 EmBm7AG
 A place called boulder on the wild Colorado,
 EmBm7AG
 I slipped and fell on the wet concrete below,
 Bm7AGAD
 They buried me in that gray tomb that knows no sounds,
 GA
But I am still around,

Chorus: (All)
 GD/F#Em
I'll always be around, and around, and around, and around, and around

 GAD
Verse 4: (Johnny Cash)
 Bm7AGBm7
 I'll fly a starship across the universe divide,
 AGDA
 And when I reach the other side,
 EmBm7AG
 I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can,
 EmBm7AG
 Perhaps I may become a highwayman again,
 Bm7AGAD
 Or I may simply be a single drop of rain,
 GA
 But I will remain,

Outro: (All) (same chords as bridge)
 GD/F#Em
And I'll be back again, and again, and again, and again, and again
