Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Highway Man  Johnny Cash



[Am]I was a [G]highwayman. Along the [F]coach roads I did [Am]ride
[G]With sword and [F]pistol by my [G]side
[Dm]Many a y[Am]oung maid lost her [G]baubles to my [F]trade
[Dm]Many a s[Am]oldier shed his [G]lifeblood on my [F]blade
[Am]The bastards [G]hung me in the [F]spring of twenty-[C]five
[F]But I am still [G]alive.
I was a sailor. I was born upon the tide
And with the sea I did abide.
I sailed a schooner round the Horn to Mexico
I went aloft and furled the mainsail in a blow
And when the yards broke off they said that I got killed
But I am living still.

I was a dam builder across the river deep and wide
Where steel and water did collide
A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below
They buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound
But I am still around..
[G]I'll always be [C]ar[C/Am]ound a[Am]nd [G]ar[F]ou[Em]nd..[Dm].......[F]..[G]. [C]

I 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
And I'll be back again, and again and again and again and again..

END
