|Performed By:||Willie Nelson|
I was a highwayman along the coach roads I did ride sword and pistol by my side many a young maid lost her baubbles 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 grey 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 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...
