  Cynthia Gooding's radio show - 13.jan.1962  

Well i'm standin' on the highway
Tryin' to bum a ride
Tryin' to bum a ride
Tryin' to bum a ride
Well i'm standin' on the highway
Tryin' to bum a ride
Tryin' to bum a ride
Tryin' to bum a ride
Nobody seem to know me
Everybody pass me by.

Well i'm standin' on the highway
Tryin' to hold up
Tryin' to hold up
Tryin' to hold up an' be brave
Well i'm standin' on the highway
Tryin' to hold up
Tryin' to hold up an' be brave
One road's goin' to the bright lights
The other's goin' down to my grave.

Well i'm standin' on the highway
Vision clear
Well i'm standin' on the highway
Vision clear
Everybody pass me by
Nobody seem to know i'm here.

Well i'm lookin' at two cards
They seem to be handmade
Well i'm lookin' at two cards
They seem to be handmade
One looks like the ace of diamonds
The other looks like it is the ace of spades.

Well, i'm standin' on the highway
Watchin' my life roll by
Well, i'm standin' on the highway
Watchin' my life roll by
Well, i'm standin' on the highway
Tryin' to bum a ride.  up

  Leeds Music demo, NYC - february 1962  

Well, i'm standin' on the highway
Tryin' to bum a ride
Tryin' to bum a ride
Tryin' to bum a ride.
Well, i'm standin' on the highway
Tryin' to bum a ride.
Nobody seem to know me
Everybody pass me by.

I wonder if my good gal
I wonder if she knows i'm here
Wonder if she knows i'm here
Wonder if she know i'm here.
Well I wonder if my good gal
I wonder if she knows i'm here
I wonder if she knows i'm here.
Well if she knows i'm here
Lord, I wonder if she said a prayer.

I got two cards lookin', lord
They seem to be handmade
Handmade, they seem to be handmade.
I got two cards lookin', lord
They seem to be handmade.
One looks like the ace of diamonds
The other looks like it's the ace of spades.

Well, i'm standin' on the crossroad
Wonderin' where everybody went
Wonderin' where everybody go
Tell me where everybody went.
Lord, i'm standin' on the crossroad
I wonder where everybody went.
Please, mister won't you pick me up
I swear i ain't gonna kill nobody's kids.

I'm standin' on the highway
Tryin' to hold up an' be 
Tryin' to hold up an' be 
Tryin' to hold up an' be brave.
Well, i'm standin' on the crossroads
Tryin' to hold up an' be 
Tryin' to hold up an' be brave.
I got one road goin' up the light
The other's goin' down to my grave.

Well, I'm standin' on the crossroads
Tryin ' to flag a ride.
Well, I'm standin' on the highway
Tryin ' to bum a ride
Tryin ' to bum a ride.
I'm standin' on the highway
Watchin' my life roll by.  up
