Key to the Highway
Derek and the Dominos Lyrics


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
Good time and bound to go
I'm gonna leave here running
Walking is most too slow

I got the key to the highway
Oh, oh, billed out and 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
You know you haven't done nothing
Drove a good man away from home

I got the key to the highway
Billed out and bound to go
I'm gonna leave here running
Walking is much 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, 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, back to the border
Babe, I'd better go
You know you haven't done nothing
Drove a good man away from home

Some of the best blues guitar ever recorded!! Clapton was in the zone..

Karelle Zala

DUANE made this song what it is <3

Pat

So was Duane!!!!

midnight rider

Outstanding guitar solos, it's great to hear eric & duane trade off on leads, but neither try to out perform the other, just beautiful playing.

Ken Coughenour

Thats what Ive always loved and respected about these two. 2 of the best that ever lived, but have never tried to outstage anyone. They are in it for the love of the music, not the fame. rare quality

Larry Klawiter

Absolutely the greatest version of this song, Eric and Duane in full flight.....

Johnny Acevedo

Little Walters version #1
But this one is great also

Johnny Acevedo

Apparently you haven’t heard Little Walter

Johnny Acevedo

@Sjaak Blaauw You are absolutely right I’ll take Freddy King over 97% of all guitar players and his voice is awesome but Little Water version has this one beat

john rizzo

@Sjaak Blaauw yeah but it's tribute
