Howlin' Wolf - Mr. Highway Man Lyrics




Be careful what you're drivin', man
That Cadillac may get away, you better be careful

There standin' the highway man, standin' parked on the road
There standin' there highway man, parked on the road
You better watch out for the red light, just before you go

Green light says go, red light says stop
Look-a-here boy, you better be on your watch
There's standin' a highway man, parked on the side of the road
You better be careful, 'bout how you drive on the road
Stop

I love the Cadillac, long wreckin' machine
I love a Cadillac, it's a long wreckin' machine
Me an my baby can ride it, everything is nice till then
(Yeah)

I'll make a cool hundred, I ain't got time to stop for gas
I'll make a cool hundred, I ain't got time to stop for gas
I'm gonna drive this automobile, just as long as the gas lasts
(Play it)

Lookit here, man, please check this oil
Lookit here, man, please check this oil
Just a long Cadillac, bound to try out your soil

    Howlin' Wolf was amazing! Ahead of his time. Check out the version of Mr. Highway man by Lester Butler and the Red Devils. Different than Wolf's, but it is excellent! It is from the mid 90's and Lester left us way too early in 1998.
