The Highwaymen
Recorded by Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings,
Kris Kristofferson and Johnny Cash
Written by Jimmy Webb

Am G7 F Am
I was a highwayman along the coach roads I did ride
G7 F C G7
Sword and pistol by my side
Dm Am G7 F
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade
Dm Am G7 F
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade
Am G7 F G7 C
The bastards hung me in the spring of twenty-five
F G7
But I’m still alive

Am G7 F Am
I was a sailor I was born upon the tide
G7 F C G7
With the sea I did abide
Dm Am G7 F
I sailed a schooner round the horn of Mexico
Dm Am G7 F
I went aloft and furled the main sail in a blow
Am G7 F G7 C
And when the yard broke off they say that I got killed
F G7
But I’m living still

Am G7 F Am
I was a dam builder across a river deep and wide
G7 F C G7
Where steel and water did collide
Dm Am G7 F
A place called boulder on the wild Colorado
Dm Am G7 F
I slipped and fell on the wet concrete below
Am G7 F G7 C
They buried me in that gray tomb that knows no sounds
F G7
But I am still around

C G7
I'll always be around and around
Am G7 F C Dm
And around and around and around

Am G7 F Am
I'll fly a starship across the universe divide
G7 F C G7
And when I reach the other side
Dm Am G7 F
I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can
Dm Am G7 F
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again
Am G7 F G7 C
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain
F G7
But I will remain

C G7
And I'll be back again and again
Am G7 F Em Dm F G7 C
And again and again and again and again
