Highwayman

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 lifeblood 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 around the Horn to Mexico
I went aloft and furled 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 dam builder
Across a 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, and around, and around…

*****

I 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, and again, and again…

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 lifeblood on my blade

The bastards hung me in the spring of twenty-five

But I am still alive

I was a sailor, I was born upon the tide

With the sea, I did abide

I sailed a schooner round the horn to Mexico

I went aloft and furled the mainsail in a blow

And when the yards broke off, they said that I got killed

But I’m living still

I was a dam builder, across a 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 starship ‘cross the universe divide

And when I reach the other side

I 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 be back again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again…
