Key To The Highway

Lyrics: Segar, Broonzy
Music: Segar, Broonzy

Sung by Luther Dickinson with Phil Lesh and Friends in November 2013 as part of their (and American Jubilee's) cover of the album "Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs".

I got the key to the highway
Billed out and bound to go
I'm gonna leave here running
Walking is most too slow

I'm going back to the border
Woman, where I'm better known
You know you haven't done nothing
Drove a good man away from home

Oh, give me one, one more kiss, mama
Just before I go
'Cause when I leave this time
You know I, I won't be back no more

I got the key, key to the highway
Billed out and bound to go
I'm gonna leave here running
Walking is most too slow

I got the key to the highway
Oh,I'm billed out and I'm bound to go
I'm gonna leave here running
Walking is most too slow

I'm going back, back to the border
Where I'm better known
'Cause you haven't done nothing
Drove a good man away from home
