Highwayman 2 chords by The Highwaymen

The Highwaymen Chords

I saw the request for this one in the last newsletter and had a copy
that I had worked out.

 Highwayman  (J.Webb)

 Am       G                   F                Am
I was a highwayman. Along the coach roads I did ride
   G             F    Am      G
With sword and pistol by my side
  Dm     Am                  G             Fmaj7
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade
 Dm      Am               G               Fmaj7
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade
 Am            G              F         G     C
The bastards hung me in the spring of twenty-five
     F          G
But I am still alive.
  Am     G            F             Am
I was a sailor. I was born upon the tide
 G           F    Am    G
And with the sea I did abide.
  Dm        Am                G        Fmaj7
I sailed a schooner round the Horn to Mexico
   Dm   Am                    G            Fmaj7
I went aloft and furled the mainsail in a blow
 Am            G                    F       G        C
And when the yards broke off they said that I got killed
    F           G
But I am living still.

 Am     G                      F              Am
I was a dam builder across the river deep and wide
 G               F    Am    G
Where steel and water did collide
  Dm            Am            G       Fmaj7
A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado
    Dm         Am            G            Fmaj7
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below
  Am        G                 F         G         C
They buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound
     F           G                       C         C/A#        Am
But I am still around..I'll always be around..and around and around and
  Am/G      F     F/E      Dm    F G E
around and around

 Am       G                   F        Am
I fly a starship across the Universe divide
G           F       Am     G
And when I reach the other side
 Dm         Am                G         Fmaj7
I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can
    Dm     Am             G         Fmaj7
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again
  Am       G          F      G       C
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain
  F         G
But I will remain
                  C        C/A#        Am       Am/G        F   F/E  Dm
And I'll be back again, and again and again and again and again..
