The Highwaymen Lyrics

performed by Johnny Cash.

Verse 1:
           A                                   F#m 
	She stepped down from her carriage at 10 Vermillon Street
            D                          E
	I took off my roustabout and slung it to her feet
           A                              F#m
	We went into her parlor and she cooled me with her fan
             D                               E             A
	But said i'll go no further with a fantasy makin' man

Verse 2:
          F#                                B                   
	I said i'd walk on Ponchatrain for what you have today
            E                                               A  
	Just to drink from your deep well and i'll be on my way
              F#                                B
	She laughed and heaven filled the room said this i give to you
             E                                                A
	This body's wisdom is the flesh,but here's a thing or two

Chorus: D E D A Death and hell are never full D E A And neither are the eyes of men D E D A Cats can fly from nine stories high E D And pigs can see the wind Verse 3: A F#m She let me make my pallet in the moonlight on the floor D E Just outside of paradise but right in hell's back door A F#m The image of her nibbled at the eye of my soul D E A My dreams were a hurricane and quite out of control Verse 4: F# B Then her voice came through the storm it's more than flesh i deal E A You will have to pay for any wisdom that you steal F# B I awoke to tinted windows and lavender and red E A The first station of the cross is just above my head F# B I awoke to gargoyles and a hard bench for my bed E A Jesus Christ and Pontias Pilate were just above my head Chorus.
