THE HIGHWAYMAN written by Stevie Nicks performed by Stevie Nicks from the album Bella Donna transcribed by Jason Fulgham A D A Alas, he was the highwayman, the one that comes and goes. E And only the highwaywoman keeps up with the likes of those. A D A D A Bm And she in all her magic, with hands as quick as light, took him to be a challenge D E A A D A And went into the night. And he in all his glory was far ahead of her but she was E Never sorry for wishes that would burn. A D A D A Bm Enter competition, she chases beneath the moon. Her horse is like a dragonfly D E A She is just a fool *Chorus* A D A Bm A E Fm And she wonders is this real? Or does she just want to be queen? D A Bm D E A And he fights the way he feels. Is this the end of the dream? A D A And then he sees her coming, heartbeats on the wind. Consider slowin' down, E A D A But then he could never win. And she, out in the distance, sees him against the sky D A Bm D E A A pale and violent rider, a dream begun in wine... *Repeat Chorus* A D A She dreams as the thunder wakes her and her highwayman disappears on a life E A Already lived before in eyes welled with tears. Today and still today they ride D A D A Bm D E A Will they ever win? He the glory, she the love, still they try again. D Cm Bm D E A He the glory, she the love, still they try again. D Cm Bm D E D A Bm E A He the glory, she the love, and still they try again.
