The Highwayman

This song gets me every time.
Is that cheezy? Is it like the "Christmas Shoes" of Celtic music?
Is it because I first heard it at a more impressionable point in my life when I still lived in a dorm room?

I don't think so--I think it's kind of amazing, and so cinematic--the words paint images in your mind, and it's a saga.

I should also note, the lyrics are this poem, by Alfred Noyes.
