If He Came Back Again
The Highwayman

Intro: D-A-D-A-D

D
You'd have thought a king had died, 

The way those people cried
  G                             D
Instead of one more broken entertainer
D
It struck those in his trade 

He could have had it made
G                           D
If he'd only been a little saner
A
  They traveled far to see him
         D              G
Oh, the humble and the high
      D              Bm            F#m   G
They said goodbye as if he were a friend

      A
Now somewhere he is smiling
     D           G
On those who idolized him
      D               Bm       A
But would they even recognize him
                  D
If he came back again?

D
He was born of modest means 

But had outrageous dreams
 G
They never let him rest 
            D
Till he fulfilled them

While he rode that train of song 

His devils tagged along
      G
The whiskey and the pills 
               D
Just couldn't kill him
           A
He didn't mean to be a rebel
          D             G 
Ah, the real ones never do
         D               Bm      F#m  G
They're born apart from ordinary men

      A   
And somewhere he is smiling 
     D            G
On those who sanctified him
      A                Bm      A
But would they even recognize him
                  D
If he came back again?

         A
It's an old familiar story
             D                  G
But it's a damn shame none-the-less
      Bm
They don't forgive his kind
           G                A
Till they lay them down to rest

A
And somewhere he is smiling 
     D           G
On those who idolized him
      A               Bm       A 
But would they even recognize him
                  D
If he came back again?

D               
Oh, if he came back again
