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, â€½Where can I go? â€
Howard said, â€½There's only one place I knowâ€
Sam said, â€½Tell 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
â€½I got forty red white and blue shoe strings
And a thousand telephones that don't ring

Then said, â€½Yeah, 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
â€½My complexionâ€, she said, â€½Is much too whiteâ€
Then said, â€½Come 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

Have it on highway 61â€
