Key to the Highway
(Big Bill Broonzy & Chas. Segar)

I've got the key to the highway
Yes I'm billed out and bound to go
I'm gonna leave here runnin', because
Walkin' is much to slow.

I'm goin' back to the border
Where I'm better known,
Because you haven't done nothing
But drive a good man from home.

Now, when the moon peeks over the mountain
Yeah ... you know I'll be on my way,
I'm gonna walk, walk this ol' highway
Deep until the break of day.

Now gimme one more kiss baby
Yes, just before I go,
'Cause when I leave you this time now, baby,
I declare I won't be back no more.

So long and goodbye
Yes I had to say goodbye,
'Cause I'm gonna walk, walk this ol' highway,
Deep until the day I die.

Recorded by Big Bill Broonzy, Brook Benton, Joe Williams, Jimmy
Witherspoon and others.
