Highwayman — The Highwaymen

Before the Wilburys went for creating a supergroup, Cash, Jennings, Nelson, and Kristopherson were making great albums and having yet another excuse for touring together.

This of course is the primary hit (but hardly the only good song) off their first album The Highwaymen. I always loved the combination of historical fiction (Willie as the 17th century Highwayman, Kris as a sailor) and sci-fi (Johnny's astronaut), all in a "traditional" country song.
