Highwayman  Johnny Cash

Capo 2nd fret
[Am]I was a [G]highwayman. Along the[F] coach roads I di[Am]d ride
[G]With sword and [F]pistol by my[G] side
[Dm]Many a young [Am]maid lost her [G]baubles to m[F]y trade
[Dm]Many a [Am]soldier shed his[G] lifeblood on m[F]y blade
[Am]The bastards [G]hung me, in the[F] spring of twent[C]y-five
[F]But I am still [G]alive.

[Am]I was a [G]sailor. I was [F]born upon the [Am]tide
[G]And with the [F]sea I did [G]abide.
[Dm]I sailed a [Am]schooner round the [G]Horn to [F]Mexico
[Dm]I went [Am]aloft and furled the [G]mainsail in a [F]blow
[Am]And when the yards [G]broke off, they [F]said that I got [C]killed
[F]But I am living [G]still.

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

[Am]I fly a [G]starship across the [F]Universe [Am]divide
[G]And when I [F]reach the other [G]side
[Dm]I'll find a [Am]place to rest my [G]spirit if I [F]can
[Dm]Perhaps I [Am]may become a [G]highwayman [F]again
[Am]Or I may [G]simply be a [F]single drop of [Am]rain
[G]But I[F], will r[G]emain
[G]And I'll be back [C]again, and [Am]again and [G]again and [F]again and [Em]again[Dm]..
