Highwayman Songtext
von The Highwaymen

Highwayman Songtext

I was a highwayman along the coach roads I did ride
Sword and pistol by my side
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade
Many a soldier shed his life 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
The way of the sea I did abide
I sailed a schooner 'round the horn of Mexico
I went aloft to furl the mainsail so little blow
And when the yards broke off they said that I got killed
But I am living still


I was a dam builder 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 gray tomb that knows no sound
But I am still around, I'll always be around and around and around
And around and around and around

I fly a star ship 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 around and around and around and around
