Bruce Springsteen – Highway 61 Revisited lyrics
Oh God said to abraham, kill me a sonAbe says, man, you must be putting me onGod say, no. abe say, what? God say, you can do what you want abe, butThe next time you see me comin’ you better runWell abe says, where do you want this killing done? God says, out on highway 61.Well georgia sam he had a bloody noseWelfare department they wouldn’t give him no clothesHe asked poor howard where can I goHoward said there’s only one place I knowSam said tell me quick man I got to runOl’ howard just pointed with his gunAnd said that way down on highway 61.Well mack the finger said to louie the kingI got forty red white and blue shoe stringsAnd a thousand telephones that don’t ringDo you know where I can get rid of these thingsAnd louie the king said let me think for a minute sonAnd he said yes I think it can be easily doneJust take everything down to highway 61.Now the fifth daughter on the twelfth nightTold the first father that things weren’t rightMy complexion she said is much too whiteHe said come here and step into the light he says hmm you’re rightLet me tell the second mother this has been doneBut the second mother was with the seventh sonAnd they were both out on highway 61.Now the rovin’ gambler he was very boredHe was tryin’ to create a next world warHe found a promoter who nearly fell off the floorHe said I never engaged in this kind of thing beforeBut yes I think it can be very easily doneWe’ll just put some bleachers out in the sunAnd have it on highway 61.
