Highway '61 Revisited Lyrics

Highway '61 Revisited - PJ Harvey

Well god said to Abraham kill me a son


Abe said man you must be putting me on

God said no Abe said what


God say you do what you wanna but

The next time you see me coming you'd better run


Abe said where do you want this killing done

God said out on that highway sixty one


Well Georgia Sam he had bloody nose

Welfare department would give him no clothes


He asked poor Howard where can I go

Howard said there's only one place I know

Sounds great man tell me I gotta run


Howard just pointed with his gun


And said that way down on sixty one

Well Mack the finger said louse the king

I've got forty red white and blue shoestrings

And a thousand telephone that don't ring


You know I can't get rid of these things

And he said now let me think for a minute son


He said yes that can be easily done

Just take them down on that sixty one

That highway highway


Highway highway highway


Now the fifth daughter on the twelfth night

Told first father that things weren't right

My complexion she said is much too white

He said come here and stare up into the light

He said mm you're right

Let me tell the second mother it's been done


But the second mother with the seventh son

They were out on that highway sixty one

Now the roving gambler he was very bored


Trying to create a next world war


And he found a promoter fell off the floor

And said I never engaged in this kind of thing before

But yep I think it can be easily done highway


Just put some bleachers there out in the sun


And have it out on that sixty one
