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
