New Lee Highway Blues

September 5, 2016

“Lee Highway Blues,” written and performed by David Bromberg. Recorded in 1974 with some great musicians.

And then we’d ride
You know that God damned road seemed like it went forever
Exhaust fumes made our eyes turn red and swell
With our clothes stuck to the seat and to our bodies”
