Lyrics 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 twenty five but I am still alive
I was a sailor
I was born upon the tide
And with the sea I did abide
I sail a schooner 'round the Horn to Mexico
I went aloft and furled the mainsail in a blow
And when the yards broke of they said that I got killed but I am living still
I was a dam builder across the river deep and wild
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 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 and again
