Lyrics

Traffic Jam Blues (Words and music by Alan Gillis)

Verse 1
Sitting in my car trying to get where I'm going
Stuck in the middle of a traffic jam
I am in a hurry
And it's so frustrating
When I'm stuck here waiting for somebody to move
Turn on the radio and hear the traffic news that I already know

Verse 2
Look at the gauge see the temperature rising
There's no way I'm gonna get out of this place
There's a space if I hurry
Somebody beat me to it
This time I really blew it now the engine has stalled
Here comes the law and I bet he thinks that I am the cause of it all

Chorus

There's nothing I can do I got the traffic jam blues
I really made the news with the traffic jam blues
It's the longest one in history
It really is a mystery
How they blame a record tailback
On my overheated hatchback
There's nothing I can do
I've got the traffic jam blues

Verse 3
My water's boiling over and I'm running out of gas
I'm really in mess and I wish I'd stayed in bed
I said believe me sergeant
I'm a law-abiding driver
And I know that I've a lot of explaining to do
I really made the news - I've got the traffic jam blues

Repeat chorus

There's nothing I can do I've got the traffic jam blues
There's nothing I can do I've got the traffic jam blues
There's nothing I can do
I've got the traffic jam blues
