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
