      Lyrics for Jimmy Webb - "The Highwayman (feat. Mark Knopfler)"

      I was a highwayman
      Along the coach roads I did ride
      With the sword and pistol by my side
      And many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade
      And many a soldier shed his life blood on my blade
      They fin'lly hung me in the spring of '25
      But I am still alive

      I was a sailor
      And I was born upon the tide
      And with the sea I did abide
      I sailed a schooner 'round the horn of Mexico
      I went aloft to furl the mainsail in a blow
      And when the yards broke off they say 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 great tomb that knows no sound
      But I am still around
      Seems like it all goes 'round and 'round
      And 'round and 'round

      I'll fly a starship
      Across the universe divide
      Until 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.
