Highwayman  The Highwaymen

[Bm]I was a hi[A]ghwayman. [G]Along the coach roads [A]I did [Bm]ride
[A] With sword and [G]pistol by my [A]side
[Em] Many a [Bm]young maid lost her [A]baubles to my [G]trade
[Em] Many a [Bm]soldier shed his [A]lifeblood on my [G]blade
[Bm] The bastards [A]hung me, in the [G]spring [A]of twenty-[D]five
[G] But I am still [A]alive.

[Bm] I was a [A]sailor. I was [G]born [A]upon the [Bm]tide
[A] And with the [G]sea I did [A]abide.
[Em] I sailed a [Bm]schooner round the [A]Horn to [G]Mexico
[Em] I went a[Bm]loft and furled the [A]mainsail in a [G]blow
[Bm] And when the [A]yards broke off, they [G]said that [A]I got k[D]illed
But [G]I am living [A]still.

[Bm] I was a [A]dam builder. Across the [G]river deep and [Bm]wide.
[A] Where steel and [G]water did [A]collide.
[Em] A place called [Bm]Boulder on the [A]wild Colo[G]rado
[Em] I slipped and [Bm]fell into the [A]wet concrete bel[G]ow
[Bm] They buried [A]me, in that great [G]tomb that k[A]nows no [D]sound
But [G]I am still [A]around.
A D Bm A G F#m Em B>C#>D
I'll always be around and around............

[Bm] I fly a [A]starship across the [G]Universe div[Bm]ide
[A] And when I [G]reach the other [A]side
[Em] I'll find a [Bm]place to rest my [A]spirit if I [G]can
[Em] Perhaps I [Bm]may become a [A]highwayman a[G]gain
[Bm] Or I may [A]simply be a [G]single [A]drop of [D]rain
[G]But I, will rema[A]in
And I'll be back [D]again, and [Bm]again
A G F#m Em B>C#>D
and again and again and again..
