Highway 61 Revisited - Bob Dylan & The Band
Abe said, "Man, you must be puttin' me on"
God said, "No", Abe said, "What?"
God said, "You can do what you want Abe, but
The next time you see me comin' you better run"
Well Abe said, "Where do you want this killin' done?"
God said, "Out on Highway 61"
Georgia Sam he had a bloody nose
Welfare Department wouldn't give him no clothes
He asked poor Howard, "Where can I go?"
And Howard said, "There's only one place I know"
Sam said, "Tell me quick man, I got to run"
And ol' Howard just pointed out with his gun
"That way down on Highway 61"
Well, Mack the Finger said to Louie the King
"I got forty red white and blue shoe strings
And a thousand telephones that don't ring
Do you know where I can possibly get rid of these things"
And Louie the King said, "Let me think for a minute, son
Well then ya I think it can be easily done
Take it on down to Highway 61"
Well the fifth daughter on the twelfth night
Told the first father that things weren't right
"My complexion" she said, "Is much too white"
Come on over here girl and step into this light
Yeah 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
The rovin' gambler was very bored
He was tryin' to create a next world war
Well he found a promoter who nearly fell on the floor
Well I've 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
Writer(s): Bob Dylan
