[1948?]
Parole e musica di John Lee Hooker
In molti dischi e compilation del grande bluesman, a cominciare da “Goin' Down Highway 51”, raccolta del 1971 contenente brani registrati nell’immediato secondo dopo guerra, tra il 1948 ed il 1951.

Goin' Down Highway 51
Well the war is over
And I'm broke and I ain't gotta dime
Well the war is over
And I'm broke and I ain't gotta dime

Well all my money's gone
And my friend's don't know me no more

People when I had plenty money
I had friends all around my door
Yes when I had plenty money
I had friends all around my door

Well now all my money's gone
And my friend's don't know me no more

Well, goodbye California
Hate to leave you this way
Well, goodbye California
Hate to leave you this way

Well the Greyhound brought me here
Highway 51 is gonna carry me away
