Key To The Highway
Little Walter Lyrics

I've got the key to the highway,
Billed out and bound to go.
I'm gonna leave here running,
Because, walkin is most too slow.

I'm goin back to the border,
Where I'm better known.
Because, you haven't done nothin,
But, drove a good man away from home.
Give me one more kiss, mama,
Just before I go.
I'm gonna leave this town,
Girl, I won't be back no more.

When the moon peep over the mountain,
Honey, I'll be on my way.
I'm gonna roam this highway,
Until the break of day.

Well, it's so long, so long baby,
I'm gonna say goodbye.
I'm gonna roam this highway,
Until the day I die.

My favorite version of this song from 1958. Besides Little Walter on vocals and harmonica, this song features Muddy Waters and Luther Tuckers on guitars, Otis Spann on piano, Willie Dixon on bass, and Francis Clay on drums.


This is, arguably, and in my personal estimation, the #1 greatest blues single of all time.

Philip Green

Who can argue?

P.M. Lynch

@eugene spudich yes

eugene spudich

i agree.

John Carroll

This is by far my favorite version of this classic

Charlie Newman

Me too.
It has been since it was 1st released.

Bob Aldo

This is the "badest" version of Key To The Highway in existence. Little Walter did the definitive version - he "owns" it.

Larry N

@Danny Roberts best, of course.

Louis Hansell

Most true!
