      *The Highwayman*


Finally, I’ve come face to face with the tiger in me.

Eye to eye and now I know why... he won’t let me be, 

for my destine swings from the limb of that old hanging tree.


The deeds I’ve do, bad or good have followed me to the hangman’s 

tree.  In the eye of the tiger, I can see my mortal end, swinging, swing 

from the hangman’s tree...

I wish like hell, I had shot him again!

The tiger in me,will now pay for that mortal sin..

for being a Highwayman.
