Highway 61 Blues

Take Highway 61 way down south to New Orleans
Let’s take Highway 61 way down south to New Orleans
Sunlight’s (shinin’) through the windshield
Can’t you the smell the gasoline?

We could have a good time baby, just smoking cheap cigars
We could have a good time baby, just smoking cheap cigars
Ramblin through all the Delta
Down to Preservation Hall

Solo

We’ll stop off at Memphis and hear some good ol’ Jerry Lee
We’ll stop off at Memphis and hear some good ol’ Jerry Lee
I’ll dress up in my three-piece suit
And you can wear your diamond ring

Solo

Don’t stay long at the crossroads where Mr. Johnson sold his soul
Don’t stay long at the crossroads where Mr. Johnson sold his soul
Better get down to the Gospel Church
Get some Jesus on Hale Road

I wakeup every morning baby and I thank God I’m alive
I wakeup every morning baby and I thank God I’m alive
I love to drink the water baby
But the well is running dry

Solos
