The Lyrics

Who doesn't know the famed story of Highwayman robber Dick Turpin and his magnificent mare Black Bess that made the London-to-York run of 150 miles in 19 hrs, giving Turpin a valid alibi against his crime in the London area??? Although heavily debated on authenticity, Turpin was real and caught, hanged for his crimes. Black Bess remains an enigma. Was she stolen from Major at gun-point by Turpin? Did SHE make that run or not? Well, some believe and others dispute...
Go, go, go, go
On the run with Black Bess

Go, go, go, go
On the run with Black Bess

Black Bess! Black- Bess! Black Bess
Black Bess! Black-Bess! Hurrah!!!

When I run to her she is ready
She was built for strength and speed more than beauty
Her broad snorting nostril, which seems to snuff the gale with disdain
No eagle on the wing could skim the air more swiftly

From London to York town, London to York town
A mare of renown, a mare of renown
(150 miles, 19 hours, alibi is sound)

[Chorus]
I’m just a Highwayman, wanted in all England
But I’m on the run with Black Bess, a beauty!
I’m just a Highwayman, wanted in all England
But I’m on the run with Black Bess, a beauty!

Go, go, go, go
On the run with Black Bess

Go, go, go, go
On the run with Black Bess

Black Bess! Black- Bess! Black Bess
Black Bess! Black-Bess! Hurrah!!!

I couldn’t love a horse so loyally
Her paces, how she moves so gracefully
Coal-black, with coat silky like satin
Magnificent, compact, bred to win

From London to York town, London to York town
A mare of renown, a mare of renown
(150 miles, 19 hours, alibi is sound)

I’m just a Highwayman, wanted in all England
But I’m on the run with Black Bess, a beauty!
I’m just a Highwayman, wanted in all England
But I’m on the run with Black Bess, a beauty!

Go, go, go, go
On the run with Black Bess

Go, go, go, go
On the run with Black Bess

[Bridge]
In the most criminal sense,
Turpin is beyond repentance
Famed robber, squalid wretch, commits more crime
But using common sense
Turpin is not that dense
Black Bess, just cleared a 10 ft fence!
Good luck catching Turpin next time…

I certainly adore you,
But the law’s trying to pull me right off you
True, I have no virtue,
Black Bess is the finest horse I cling to
I cling to

I’m just a Highwayman, wanted in all England
But I’m on the run with Black Bess, a beauty!
I’m just a Highwayman, wanted in all England
But I’m on the run with Black Bess, a beauty!

Go, go, go, go
On the run with Black Bess

Go, go, go, go
On the run with Black Bess

Black Bess! Black- Bess! Black Bess
Black Bess! Black-Bess! Hurrah!!!


If blood can give nobility, A noble steed was she; Her sire was blood, and blood her dam, And all her pedigree
