Highway 61 Blues

This song is by Roosevelt Sykes and appears on the album Roosevelt Sykes Vol. 3 (1931-1933) (1992).

If you ever been to Memphis, you stop down in Hollywood
If you ever been to Memphis, you stop down in Hollywood
Lord the women out there, don't mean no one man no good

I'm leaving St Louis, I'm going out Grand Avenue
I'm leaving St Louis, I'm going out Grand Avenue
I got to go to Memphis, something over there that I want to do

When I hit Grand, look like my troubles just begun
When I hit Grand Avenue, look like my troubles just begun
Lord it breaks my heart, to sing about Highway Sixty-One

I felt so blue, while I was out on that lonely highway
I felt so blue, while I was out on that lonely highway
I say I'm riding now, but maybe my trouble will end some sweet day

I can stand right here, look down on Beale Avenue
I can stand right here, look on Beale Avenue
I can see everything, that pretty Miss so-and-so do

Oh listen kind mama, don't worry about your dad when I'm gone
Oh listen kind mama, don't worry about your dad when I'm gone
You know I'm wild about your kind mama, I ain't going to do nothing wrong
