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
