"Living On The Highway" lyrics - FREDDIE KING

"Living On The Highway"
(Don Nix / Leon Russell)

It was twenty years ago, I was about fourteen years old,
When I first heard that Wolfman's howl.
He sneaked me through the door, there was whisky on the floor,
And the fuzz they were on the prowl
It seems so long ago,
I'm living on the Highway now

He's a giant of a man, He always understands
The very best notes to use
His hand make two of mine, his heart beat right on time
He taught me how to sing the blues
He's the reason why I choose to live on the highway now

I played the blues with Walter, and Muddy pulled me through
I know a Jimmy Rogers song or two
But there's one thing I know, no matter where I go
I can do a little howling too
That's why I sing these blues, I'm living on the highway now

The years have come and gone but the blues still go on
I only sing my songs for fun
If you ask me to, I'll do a song for you,
'Cause the women like to see me come
Me and my guitar, my band, we're living on the highway now
