Bm      A 
I was a highwayman 
G                        Bm 
On the coach roads I did ride 
A              G           A 
With sword and pistol by my side 
Em      D                  A            G 
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade 
Em      D              A              G 
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade 
Bm           A             G                   A 
The bastards hung me in the spring of twenty-five 
D             A 
But I am still alive. 

Bm      A 
I was a sailor 
G                       Bm 
And I was born upon the tide 
A             G                A 
And with the sea I did abide. 
Em           D                A         G 
I sailed a schooner round the Horn to Mexico 
Em           D                A          G 
I went aloft to furled the mainsail in a blow 
Bm           A                   G                   A 
And when the yards broke off they said that I got killed 
D             A 
But I'm living still. 

Bm      A 
I was a dam builder 
G                          Bm 
Across this river deep and wide 
A               G               A 
Where steel and water did collide 
Em                D             A          G 
In a place called Boulder on the wild Colorado 
Em            D                    A                G 
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below 
Bm           A                  G                  A 
Then they buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound 
D             A 
But I am still around 
               Bm           A           G           A 
I'll always be around, and around, and around, and around 

Bm~     A~ 
I fly a star ship 
G~           A~            Bm 
Across the universe divide 
A           G                  A 
And when I reach the other side 
Em           D               A                     G 
I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can 
Em           D          A            G 
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again 
Em       D           A                    G 
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain 
D          A 
But I will remain 
                 Bm         A          G           A 
And I'll be back again, and again, and again, and again
