Waylon Jennings - Highwayman Lyrics

I was a highwayman
Along the coach roads I did ride
With sword and pistol by my side,
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade,
Many a soldier shed his life's blood on my blade,
The bastards hung me in the spring of '25
But I am still alive;
I was a sailor
I was born upon the tide
And with the sea I did abide,
I sailed a schooner 'round the horn to Mexico,
I went aloft to furl the mainsail in a blow,
And when the yards broke off, they said that I got killed,
But I am living still;
I was a dambuilder
Across the river deep and wide
Where steel and water did collide,
A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado,
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below,
They buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound
But I am still around,
I'll always be around, and around, and around, and around...
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,
And I'll be back again, and again, and again, and again...

[Thanks to Connie for lyrics]
