Highway 61 - Johnny Winter

God said to Abraham, "Kill me a son"
Abe says, "Man, you must be puttin' me on"
God said, "No." and Abe say, "What ?"
God said, "You can do what you want Abe, but
The next time you see me comin' you better run"
Abe says, "Where do you want this killin' done?"
God says. "Out on Highway 61".

Georgia Sam he had a bloody nose
Welfare Department they wouldn't give him no clothes
He asked poor Howard "Where can I go?"
Howard said "Man there's but one place I know"
Sam said "Tell me quick man I got to run"
Ol' Howard just pointed with his gun
And said "That way down on Highway 61."

Mack the finger said to Louie the King
"I got forty eight red, white and blue shoe strings
And a thousand telephones that don't ring
Do you know where I can get ride of these things?"
And Louie the King said "Let me think for a minute son"
He said "Yes I think it can be easily done
Just take everything down to Highway 61."

Now the fifth daughter on the twelfth night
Told the first father that things weren't right
"My complexion" she said "Is much too white"
He said "Come here and step into the light" He says "Yes you're right,
Let me tell the second mother this has been done"
But the second mother was with the seventh son
And they were both out on Highway 61.

Now the rowin' gambler he was very bored
He was tryin' to create a next world war
He found a promoter who almost fell off the floor
He said "I never engaged in this kind of thing before
But yes I think it can be very easily done.
We'll just put some bleachers out in the sun
And have it on Highway 61."
