Intro: [0:00]
Bm (4 bars)

___________
Verse: [0:10]
Bm......A-..................A..........G-.....................Bm-...
I was a highwayman. Along the coach roads I did ride,
A....................G.......D-.....A-...
With sword and pistol by my side.
Em......Bm-.......................A*-...............Em7/B-...
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade;
Em......Bm-................A*-..................Em7/B-...
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade.
Bm................A-...................G...........A*-.....D-....
The (?)astards hung me in the spring of twenty-five...
G*-...............A- A-...
But I am still alive.

___________
Verse: [0:46]
Bm.......A-.....A.......G-.................Bm-...
I was a sailor. I was born upon the tide,
A................G......D-....A-...
And with the sea I did abide.
Em.........Bm-......................A*-............Em7/B-...
I sailed a schooner round the Horn to Mexico;
Em.......Bm-....................A*-.............Em7/B-...
I went aloft and furled the mainsail in a blow.
Bm................A-........................G..............A*-D-....
And when the yards broke off they said that I got killed...
G*-................A- A-...
But I am living still.

___________
Verse: [1:21]
Bm.......A-................A...........G-.................Bm-...
I was a dam builder across the river deep and wide,
A.....................G.......D-.....A-...
Where steel and water did collide.
Em................Bm-...............A*-.......Em7/B-...
A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado;
Em..............Bm-...........A*-.................Em7/B-...
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below.
Bm.............A-....................G............A*-.........D-....
They buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound.
G*-...............A-.......A*-..................
But I am still around, I'll always be...

____________
Refrain: [1:55]
......D..............DM7/C#-.....Bm..........A-.............G......
... around and around and around and around and around
........D/F#-.......Em-......G A*- D-....
and around and around.

___________
Verse: [2:08]
Bm.....A-..........A.............G-............Bm-...
I fly a star-ship, across the Universe divide,
A...............G............D-.....A-...
And when I reach the other side...
Em.........Bm-.................A*-........Em7/B-...
I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can;
Em..........Bm-...............A*-...............Em7/B-...
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again.
Bm..........A-.............G.......A*-.....D-....
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain,
G*-...........A-......A*-..................
But I will remain, and I'll be back...

_____________
Refrain: [2:42]
......D............DM7/C#-..Bm........A-...........G.............D/F#-
... again and again and again and again and again and again
........Em- G A*- D (A)- D....
and again.

End: [3:03]
