Highway Blues

This song is by Lightnin' Hopkins and appears on the compilation album Texas Thunderbolt (2007).

I was traveling fast one of these days, talking 'bout I was on my way down to the highway Eighty
That's when I know'd I'm going to meet that lady
I'm going to take my girl have some fun, if my money don't spend, I can shoot my gun
I'm going, yes, I'm going, yes, I'm going on that highway

Now look here, folks. Here's a little poem I'm going to tell you, but I didn't know it right then but I'm going to say it because I found out later that it was all right. Yes, come on in there where we can get it good

You know there's a place you can put your money down, take your girl, go there and clown
I'm going to, I'm going to clown
I'm going to clown with you peoples, God knows I'm going to break 'em
I didn't know why I didn't know that place was there, but I didn't

She spoke out loud, "Don't make me mad"
Looked up this morning, she had everything I had
I was mad with the world
I was mad with the world
Reason why I was mad, I didn't know why she done it for
