Johnny Winter sings Bob Dylan

That’s the highway [Highway 61] I was sorta born on. It goes into Mississippi. And plus, I’m a groupie. I really am, just like anyone else. I like Bob Dylan, Mick Jagger and The Beatles. A lot of their songs relate to me personally, even though I haven’t written them.


John Dawson “Johnny” Winter III (February 23, 1944 – July 16, 2014) was an American singer and guitarist. Winter was known for his high-energy blues rock albums and live performances in the late 1960s and 1970s. He also produced three Grammy Award-winning albums for blues singer and guitarist Muddy Waters. After his time with Waters, Winter recorded several Grammy-nominated blues albums. In 1988, he was inducted into the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame and in 2003, he was ranked 63rd in Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time”.

Like A Rolling Stone

Once upon a time you dressed so fine
Threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn’t you?

From a Buick 6

I got this graveyard woman, you know, she keeps my kids
But my soulful mama, you know, she keeps me hid

Highway 61 Revisited

Oh, God said to Abraham, “Kill me a son”
Abe say, “Man, you must be puttin’ me on”
God say, “No”, Abe say, “What?”
God say, “You can do what you want Abe
But the next time you see me comin’, you better run”
