White Buffalo, The - The Highwayman Lyrics




I was a highwayman
On the coach roads I did ride
With a 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'm 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 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'm living still

I was a dam builder
Across this river deep and wide
Where steel and water did collide
In a place called Boulder on the wild Colorado
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below
They buried me in that grey tomb that knows no sound
But I'm still around
And I'll always be around, and around, and around

And I flew a star ship
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 come back again, and again, and again
And again, and again, and again

    keiner hat in USA etwas gesagt oder schlechtes gemacht.. die lassen menschen leben.. auch auf der strasse lassen die einen leben

  42. FK F

    ich habe in USA im Auto geschlafen, die Polizei hat mich in ruhe gelassen, die haben gesagt egal, lass dein auto hier auf dem platz hier ist schutz und schlaf ruhig... die Polizei macht da nix.... Sportparkplatz bei Football Feld.... mit Licht ganze nacht und Dusche im Fabrik umsonst alles, und auch essen umsonst..tankstelle is 24/7 offen gibt immer alte hot dog zum essen...US Army macht auch gleich Türen auf für Neue Soldaten, die wollten mich gleich Einbehalten wenn ich mich 5 Jahre verplichte.. und danach Auslandseinsatz und USA Pass... die Suchen Soldaten über all die Amerikaner rekrutieren sofort

  43. FK F

    In Detroit Downtown gibts leere Gebäude mit Vorhängeschloss da kann man einfach einziehen.. alles leer.. oder die Haben Wohncontainer am Stadtrand die stehen raum, das sind baustellencontainer die leer sind zum wohnen.. mit strom gratis und es gibt auch obdachlosenhilfe 200$ im monat und essen in kirchen umsonst

  44. FK F

    In USA gibts verlassene Landebenen mit leeren Häusern, da kann man rein und Leben.. die haben da Felder mit Essen und Wälder und Bäche... man kann in USA ohne Haus ein leeres Haus finde...da stehe auch Autos rum oder Tankstellen mit Gratis Benzin.. alles leer.. in der Mitte vom Land ist fast nichts los und nur weite und leere siedlungen, alte Bahngleise..die kann man entlanglaufen die führen immer zu den hauptstädten.. John hat mir gesagt das er entlang der strommasten und bahngleiche gelaufen ist in den ganzen usa und immer hat er ein haus gefunden und immer etwas zum arbeiten um ein paar dollar zu machen... der war landstreicher und US Soldat oder John.... des gibts in USA
