Oh God said to Abraham, "Kill me a son"

Abe says, "Man, you must be puttin' me on"
God say, "No." Abe say, "What?"
God say, "You can do what you want Abe, but
The next time you see me comin' you better run"
Well Abe says, "Where do you want this killin' done?"
God says, "Out on Highway 61."

~ Bob Dylan
"Highway 61 Revisited"

Well, there some folks said them
Greyhound buses don't run
Lordy, some folks said them
Greyhound buses don't run
Lord, just go to West Memphis, baby
Look down Highway 61

~ Mississippi Fred McDowell
"Highway 61"

Sittin' out here on 61
Waitin' for the Greyhound bus to run
~ Blind Mississippi Morris

Highway 61 was an important north-south connection before the interstate highway system.
