My baby woke me up this mornin', she told me she's Joliet bound
My baby woke me up this mornin', she told me she was Joliet bound
She want to find 4A highway, that's the main highway out of town

She wouldn't even talk with me, wouldn't even have a word to say
She wouldn't even talk with me, wouldn't even have a word to say
She's askin' all her friends around now, where she find number 4A highway

Number 4A highway, that's the main highway out of town
Number 4A highway, that's the main highway out of town
If she leave out on that highway, I'm sure gon' trail my baby down

I feel like takin' my suitcase, settin' down on the side of that lonesome highway
I feel like takin' my suitcase, settin' down the side of that lonesome highway
If she leaves there between now and midnight, I'll overtake her just 'fore day

If I had my machine, I wouldn't worry 'bout leavin' town
If I had my machine, I wouldn't worry 'bout leavin' town
I'd get on that 4A highway, God know I'd roll that highway down
