Bob Dylan - "Standing On The Highway" lyrics

by Bob Dylan

Well, I'm standin' on the highway
Tryin' to bum a ride, tryin' to bum a ride,
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.

Well, I'm standin' on the highway
Tryin' to hold up, tryin' to hold up,
Tryin to hold up and be brave.
Tryin' to hold up, tryin to hold up and be brave.
Well, I'm standin' on the highway
One roads goin' to the bright lights,

The others goin' down to my grave.
Well, I'm lookin' down at two card,
They seem to be handmade.
They seem to be handmade.
Well, I'm lookin' down at two card,
One looks like it's the ace of diamonds,

Well, I'm standin' on the highway
The other looks like it is the ace of spades.
Watchin' my life roll by.
Well, I'm standin' on the highway
Well, I'm standin' on the highway
Watchin' my life roll by.
Tryin' to bum a ride.

Wonderin' where everybody went, wonderin' where everybody went,
Well, I'm standin' on the highway
Wonderin' where everybody went.
Wonderin' where everybody went, wonderin' where everybody went,
Well, I'm standin' on the highway
I swear I ain't gonna kill nobody's kids.
Wonderin' where everybody went.
Please mister, pick me up,

I wonder if my good gal,
I wonder if she knows I'm here,
I wonder if my good gal,
Nobody else seems to know I'm here.
I wonder if she knows I'm here,
Nobody else seems to know I'm here.
If she knows I'm here, Lawd,
I wonder if she said a prayer
