Highway 61 Revisted (banter) - Lyrics

God said to Abraham, "Kill me a son"
Abe says, "Man, you must be puttin' me on"
God say, "No", Abe say, "What?"
God say, "You can do what you want Abe, but
The next time you see me comin' you better run"
Abe says, "Where do you want this killin' done?"
God says, "Out on highway 61"

Georgia Sam, he had a bloody nose
Welfare department wouldn't give him no clothes
He asked poor Howard, ‽Where can I go? â€
Howard said, ‽There's only one place I knowâ€
Sam said, ‽Tell me quick, man, I got to runâ€
Howard just pointed all the way with his gun
That way down on highway 61

Mack, the finger said to Louie, the king
‽I got forty red white and blue shoe strings
And a thousand telephones that don't ring
Do you know where I can get rid of these things? â€
Louie, the king said, ‽Let me think for a minute, sonâ€
Then said, ‽Yeah, I think it can be easily done
Take it on down to highway 61

The fifth daughter on the twelfth night
Told the first father that things weren't right
‽My complexionâ€, she said, ‽Is much too whiteâ€
Then said, ‽Come on [incomprehensible] here girl, step into the light
[incomprehensible] you're right
Let me tell the second mother this has been done
But the second mother was with the seventh son
And they were both out on highway 61

Rovin' gambler, he was very bored
Tryin' to create a next world war
He found a promoter, he nearly fell off the floor
‽I never did engage in this kind of thing before
But yeah, I think it can be very easily done
We'll just put some bleachers out in the sun
Have it on highway 61â€
