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?"
Howard said, "There's only one place I know"
Sam said, "Tell me quick man, I got to run"
Ol' Howard just pointed out with his gun
"That way down on Highway 61"
Well, ol' Mack the Finger said to Louie the King
"I got forty red white an' blue shoe strings
And a thousand telephones that don't ring
Do you know where I can possibly get rid of these things?"
And Louie the King said, "Let me think for a minute son"
Well, then he asked, that it can be easily done
Take it all down to Highway 61
Well, the fifth daughter on the twelfth night
Told the first father that things weren't right
My complexion, she said, is much too white
Come on over here girl, let's step into this light, yeah, you're
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
The rovin' gambler, he was very bored
Tryin' to create a next world war
Oh, he found a promoter, nearly fell off this floor
Well, I never engaged in this kind of thing before
But yes, I think it can be very easily done
We'll just put some bleachers out in the sun
Have it on Highway 61
