  •  But I am still around..I am living still. (8+ / 0-)

    Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Kris Kristofferson - Highwaymen

    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 of 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..

    "Who are these men who really run this land? And why do they run it with such a thoughtless hand?" David Crosby
