Bob Dylan - Highway 51 Blues Lyrics




Highway 51 runs right by my baby's door
Highway 51 runs right by my baby's door
If I don't get the girl I'm loving
Won't go down to Highway 51 no more

Well, I know that highway like I know my hand
Yes, I know that highway like I know the back of my hand
Running from up Wisconsin way down to no man's land

Well, if I should die before my time should come
And if I should die before my time should come
Won't you bury my body out on the Highway 51

Highway 51 runs right by my baby's door
I said, Highway 51 runs right by my baby's door
If I don't get the girl I'm loving
Won't go down to Highway 51 no more

    Hurley, WI: 'Where 51 ends and the fun begins', a sign seen many many times in my childhood.

  2. Pat Downs

    I wonder what Bob would sound like if he tried to perform this song today?
    Not good. Not good at all.

    Our land in right on 51 i guess around what Dylan is calling '...no mans land'. It's about six miles south of where 51 morphs into Jefferson Davis Memorial Highway. :-) :-)

  11. Katie Kintner

    Grew up near 51 in Wisconsin. Now I live just a few blocks from Rt. 66. Iconic roads are my thing I guess. ;)
