The Highwayman

Rating: 4.5

PART ONE

The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas,
The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor,
And the highwayman came riding—
Riding—riding—
The highwayman came riding, up to the old inn-door.

Very good, I enjoyed listening to this story; makes me think of either how life probably was for some in America & the UK in the 19th century. It also makes me think of the writings that I'm aware of from Washington Irving.

A very pleasant ballad, haven't read such pleasant, inventive words in a long time really entertaining and keeps the reader's attention, very handsome ballad, and you can sing it quietly, however you read it, it remains a fascinating spectacle
