  ''Bob Dylan'' recording session 2, Columbia Studio A, NYC - 20.nov.1961  

Highway 51 runs right by my baby's door
Highway 51 runs right by my baby's door
If i don't get the girl i'm lovin'
Won't go down highway 51 no more.

Well i know that highway like i know my hand
Well i know that highway like i know the back of my hand
Runnin' from up Wisconsin way
Up to no man's land.

Well if i should die 'fore my time should come
Well if i should die 'fore my time should come
Won't you bury my body
Out on highway 51.

Highway 51 runs right by my baby's door
I said highway 51 runs right by my baby's door
If i don't get the girl i'm lovin'
Won't go down highway 51 no more.

  First McKenzie tape part 2, Home of Eve and Mac McKenzie, NYC - 4.dec.1961  

Have you ever been walkin' down highway 51?
Have you ever been walkin' down highway 51?
But i don't get the girl i'm lovin'
Won't go down highway 51 no more.

Well i know that highway like i know my hand
Well i know that highway like i know the back of my hand
Runnin' from up Wisconsin way
Down to the b...... of no man's land.

Well if i should die 'fore my time should come
Well if i should die 'fore my time should come
Won't you bury my body
Out on highway 51.

There's a greyhound bus travelin' down to the ground
There's a greyhound bus travelin' down to the ground
...... on that bus
I believe i'm Greyhound bound.

Highway 51 runs right by my baby's door
Highway 51 runs right by my baby's door
But i don't get the girl i'm lovin'
Won't go down highway 51 no more.
