Highwayman

Johnny Cash



 Bm7AGBm7
 I was a highwayman, along the coach roads I did ride,
 AGA
 Sword and pistol by my side,
 EmDAEm
 Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade,
 EmDEmA
 Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade,
 Bm7AGBm7
 The basterds hung me in the spring of 25,
 DA
 But I am still alive
Verse 2: (Kris Kristopherson)
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: (Waylon Jennings)
I was a dam builder, across a river long and wide,
Where steel and water did collide,
A place called boulder 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)
 DD/C#Bm7AGD/F#Em
I'll always be around, and around, and around, and around, and around  
Verse 4: (Johnny Cash)
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
i cant take credit for this- but ug needs it.-tongue untied
