Key to the Highway

by Charles Segar and Willie Broonzy
As played by Bob Dylan at Toad's Place (New Haven, CT), Jan 12, 1990)
Tabbed by Eyolf Østrem


These three verses (plus a fourth that I couldn't make out) were played over and over again, in no particular order.


          E          B
I got the key to the highway,
E                A
 I feel bound to go.
          E
I'm gonna leave here running;
B                   E
Walking is most too slow.

I'm going down to the border
Woman, where I'm better known.
Well you ain't done nothing but
drive a good man from his home.

Kiss me one, one time more mama
One time before I go,
When I leave this time I
won't be back no more.
