Storyboard Text

  • 1 The poem begins with the Highwayman visiting his love, Bess, for one brief moment.
  • He whistled a tune to the window, and who should be waiting there But the landlord’s black-eyed daughter, Bess, the landlord’s daughter, Plaiting a dark red love-knot into her long black hair
  • 2 The Highwayman promises to come back to visit Bess tomorrow night after he steals more money.
  • “One kiss, my bonny sweetheart, I’m after a prize to-night, But I shall be back with the yellow gold before the morning light
  • 3 Instead of the Highwayman coming the next night, the very mean Red Coats show up instead.
  • A red-coat troop came marching— Marching—marching— King George’s men came marching, up to the old inn-door.
  • 4 To warm the Highwayman of the danger, Bess shoots herself to save his life.
  • 5 The next day, when the Highwayman hears Bess killed herself, he goes back for revenge. But the Red Coats kill him first.
  • 6 Although both Bess and the Highwayman are dead, they are forever in love and always will be.
  • Her musket shattered the moonlight, shattered her breast in the moonlight and warned him-with her death
