Lyrics

I'm the Highway man!

I make ends meet

Just like any man
I'm The Highway Man - Over the Garden Wall00:51

I'm The Highway Man - Over the Garden Wall

The Highwayman Song (animated)

I work with my hands

If you cross my path,


I'll knock you out

Drag you off the road

Steal your shoes from off your feet

I'm the Highway man

Gonna make ends meet....
