Quotes / The Highwayman

Go To

I was a highwayman. Along the coach roads I did ride
With sword and pistol by my side
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade.
— "Highwayman", Jimmy Webb

I'm the dandy highwayman, who you're too scared to mention.
I spend my cash on looking flash and grabbing your attention.
— "Stand and Deliver", Adam and the Ants

I became a highwayman was daylight robbery,
I was no prince charming nothing dandy about me,

It's of a brave young highwayman, this story I will tell,
His name was Willie Brennan, and in Ireland he did dwell,
T'was on the Kilworth mountains, he commenced his wild career,
And many a wealthy nobleman before him shook with fear,
Brennan on the Moor, traditional folksong

I’m the Highwayman
I make ends meet
Just like any man
I work with my hands
You cross my path…
I’ll knock you out
Drag you off the road
Steal your shoes from off your feet
I’m the Highwayman
And I make ends meet
The Highwayman, Chapter 4: Songs of the Dark Lantern, Over the Garden Wall

As I was a goin' over the far famed Kerry mountains
I met with Captain Farrell and his money he was counting
I first produced my pistol and I then produced my rapier
Saying "Stand and deliver" for he were a bold deceiver
Whiskey in the Jar, traditional folksong

Elusive, evasive, persistent... Righteous traits for a rogue.
The Ancestor, Darkest Dungeon
