John Lee Hooker – Key To The Highway lyrics

I got the key to the highway
Dear Lord, I'm bound to go
I'm gonna roam this highway
Until [Incomprehensible]

Yes, when the moon peep o'er the mountain
Honey, I'll be on my way
I'm gonna roam this highway
Until [Incomprehensible]

Give me one, one more kiss, honey
Honey, before I go
'Cause when I leave this time
I won't be back no more

So long, so long, baby
Honey, I must say goodbye
When I leave this time, baby
I ain't coming back home no more

Yes, I left my baby
Standing at the back door cryin'
She said, "I hate to see you go, daddy
Honey, take care of yourself"

Give me one more kiss, mama
Honey, before I go
'Cause I leave this time, mama
I won't be back no more
Won't be back no more
Back no more
