Kris Kristofferson And The Highwaymen Rock The House With "The Highwayman"

Kris kristofferson Songs | Kris Kristofferson And The Highwaymen Rock The House With

Kris Kristofferson made a successful career writing music before he truly began to sing himself. With number one hits sung by Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings, Kris made himself known for his writing abilities before he made himself known for his musical skills. 

But a highlight in his career, would be when Kris helped bring together a group known as The Highwaymen and recorded the song "The Highwayman" with Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and Wayon Jennings, released on the album "Highwayman". 

The name was derived from Glen Campbell's version of the song and it was only after Glen played the song for them that they discovered that would be the name of their group, because they all were always on the road and held the image of being the outlaws in country music

Check out a video of "The Highwayman" below. 


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

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

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...
