The Highway Man

In merry England, in the days of old,
there were highwaymen, who robbed for gold.
The most famous of these men, Dick Turpin was his name,
robbing stage coaches, was his favourite game.
Galloping up on Bess, his trusty steed,
on the stagecoach driver, he would draw a bead.
Stand and deliver was his cry,
hand over your gold, or be prepared to die.
After relieving the passengers of their goods,
he would gallop off, into the woods.
But then one day he made a mistake,
for the passengers on the coach, were all fake.
Police, is what they were,
on capturing him, they dragged him back to the stir.
Guilty, said the judge, you must die,
take him out, and hang him high.
So to the gallows tree, went he,
Where they left him dangling, for all the world to see.
