Highway 66 Blues (Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger) There is a Highway from coast to the coast, New York to Los Angeles, I'm a goin' down that road with troubles on my mind I got them 66 Highway Blues. Every old town that I ramble' round, Down that Lonesome Road, The police in yo' town they shove me around, I got them 66 Highway Blues. Makes me no difference wherever I ramble Lord, wherever I go, I don't wanna be pushed around by th' police in yo' town, I got them 66 Highway Blues. Been on this road for a mighty long time, Ten million men like me, You drive us from yo' town, we ramble around, And got them 66 Highway Blues. Sometimes I think I'll blow down a cop, Lord, you treat me so mean, I done lost my gal, I aint got a dime, I got them 66 Highway Blues. Sometimes I think I'll get me a gun, Thirty eight or big forty fo', But a number for a name and a big 99, Is worse than 66 Highway Blues. I'm gonna start me a hungry man's union, Ainta gonna charge no dues, Gonna march down that road to the Wall Street Walls A singin' those 66 Highway blues. Copyright Stormking Music, Inc. RG
