HIGHWAYMAN (Jimmy Webb) Johnny Cash; Willie Nelson; Waylon Jennings; Kris Kristofferson - 1985 Also recorded by: Glen Campbell; Dick Curless; The Highwaymen; Kevin Kinsella; Albert Lee & Hogan's Heroes; Pamela McNeill; Jimmy Webb. WILLIE: 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. KRIS: I was a sailor. I was born upon the tide And 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 am living still. WAYLON: 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 great tomb that knows no sound But I am still around..I'll always be around.... and around and around and around and around Johnny: 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....
