Hmmm . . . I can't recall the line in here about the highway.
I guess it's an excellent road song, though.

Anyway, there are some excellent Robert Johnson songs with "highway" or "road" mentions,
though they're not necessarily excellent road songs:


"Crossroad Blues"

"Mmm, standing at the crossroad, I tried to flag a ride;
Standing at the crossroad, I tried to flag a ride;
Didn't nobody seem to know me; everybody pass me by."


"Me and the Devil Blues"

"You may bury my body down by the highway side;
[Spoken] Baby, I don't care where you bury my body when I'm dead and gone;
You may bury my body, ooooo, down by the highway side,
So my old evil spirit can catch a Greyhound bus and ride."


"Terraplane Blues"

"Mister highwayman, please don't block the road;
Please, please don't block the road,
'Cause she's reachin' a cold one hundred, and I'm booked, and I gotta go."

"Long Time Gone" by Richard (yeah, it's really Dickey) Betts, from his outstanding Highway Call album. Put the windows down, crank it up, and let it eat!

Willie Howard (from Mayberryetta, a suburb of Hot'lanta)
