INTRO

Well, I'm gonna get up in the mornin', catch that Highway 49
Yes, I'm gettin' up in the mornin', whoo, catch that Highway 49
Malvina, my sweet woman, hoo-well-well, she don't pay poor Joe Williams no mind

Well, if you ever had the blues, catch that Highway 49
Well, if you ever had the blues, catch that Highway 49
Malvina, my sweet woman, hoo-well, boys, she tryin' to throw poor Joe Williams down

I'm gonna wake up in the mornin', (Spoken: Play it a long time!) I believe I'll dust my bed, Malvina (Spoken: Play it for me, I ain't jokin'!)
Well, I'm gettin' up in the mornin', well, I believe I'll dust my bed
Goin' down the Highway 49, hoo-well, boys, I be rockin' to my head

HARMONICA SOLO (Spoken: Play it a while, Sonny Boy. Play it for me, then you know we play together a long time, boy! Play it for me and Malvina more.)

Soon this mornin', I'll be rollin' Jackson town (Spoken: And I mean Jackson, Tennessee, too.)
Soon this mornin', whoo, well, I'll be rollin' Jackson town
Lord, I'm tired of hangin' around, hoo-well, boys, on the Highway 49

HARMONICA SOLO (Spoken: Ease on out)
