The Flying Highwayman
"Come all ye bold and swaggering Blades,
That go in search of plunder,
With Pistols cock’d and courage bold,
Have Voices loud as thunder.
Young MORGAN was a flashy blade
No youth had better courage,
Much gold he got on the highway,
That made him daily flourish."
Back in Old England it seems the Nix's worked both sides of the law.The Ride of Swift Nicks (Nix)
