The wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees. 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,. 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.

The wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees, 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. And he rode with a jeweled twinkle, His pistol butts a-twinkle, His rapier hilt a-twinkle, under the jeweled sky. His face burnt like a brand As the black cascade of perfume came tumbling over his breast; And he kissed its waves in the moonlight, Oh, sweet, black waves in the moonlight! Then he tugged at his rein in the moonlight, and galloped away to the West.

It's not based on this poem at all, but it's a great song, and it's definitely in the same spirit as the Noyes poem, a ballad about being a tough-as-nails outlaw. The man himself reading the poem, with some creepy animation to make it look like live video. Ever seen the animatronic Abraham Lincoln at Disneyland?
