The Highwayman
Glen Campbell
written by Jimmy Webb

Intro Cm

Verse 1

Cm      Bb           Cm       G#                 Cm
I was a highwayman, along the coach trails I did ride.

Bb         D#          Bb  
Sword and pistol by my side.

Fm     Cm                  Bb            G#
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade.

Fm     Cm               Bb              G#
Many a soilder shed his lifeblood on my blade.

Cm           Bb                       D#
The bastards hung me in the spring of 25,

G#                Bb
but I am still alive.

Verse 2

Cm      Bb            D#            Cm           
I was a sailor, I was born upon the tide.

Bb           D#         Bb
and With the sea I did abide.

Fm         Cm                 Bb           G#
I sailed a schooner round the horn of Mexico.

Fm                          Bb             G#
I went aloft and furled the main sail in a blow.

Cm           D#                  Bb             D#
And when the yard broke off they say that I got killed.

     G#          Bb
But I am living  still.

Verse 3

   Cm         Bb                   G#             Cm
And I was a dam builder, across the river deep and wide.

Bb              D#         Bb
Where steel and water did collide.

Fm             Cm             Bb        G#
A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado

Fm             Cm           Bb            G#
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below.

Cm          D#                    Bb            D#
They buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound.

But I am still around.

Chorus 1

 D#          Bb         D#        Bb         Cm          D#                       
I guess I'll always be around and around and around and around 

          G#  Bb  D#
and around ( fading)

Verse 4

Cm         Bb                   G#          Cm
I'll fly a starship. Across the universe divide.

Bb         D#              Bb
And when I reach the other side.

Fm          Cm                Bb         G#
I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can.

Fm        Cm              Bb      G#
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again.

Cm       D#          Bb             D#
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain.

G#          Bb
But I will remain.


                 D#        Bb         Cm        D#   G#  D#                
And I'll be back again and again and again and again

God Bless Glen Travis Campbell
