    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 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
    And with the sea I did abide
    I sailed a schooner 'round the horn to Mexico
    I went aloft to furl the mainsail in a 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 great tomb that knows no sound
    But I am still around..
    I'll always be around, and around, and around, and around, and around..

    I'll 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...
