Highwayman  Johnny Cash

[Bm7]I was a highway[A]man, along the [G]coach roads I did [Bm7]ride,
[A]Sword and [G]pistol by my [A]side,
[Em]Many a [D]young maid lost he[A]r baubles to[Em] my trade,
[Em]Many a [D]soldier shed his [Em]lifeblood on my [A]blade,
[Bm7]The basterds [A]hung me in the [G]spring of [Bm7]25,
[D]But I am still a[A]live
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)
I'll always be a[D]round, and a[D/C#]round, and a[Bm7]round, and a[A]round, and a[G]round[D/F#] [Em]
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
