STATE TROOPER

Cowboy Junkies' cover version


New Jersey Turnpike riding on a wet night
'Neath the refinery's glow, down where the great black river flow
License, registration, I ain't got none
But I got a clear conscience 'bout the things that I done
Mister state trooper, please don't stop me
Please don't stop me, please don't stop me

Maybe you got a kid, maybe you got a pretty wife
The only thing that I got's been bothering me my whole life
Mister state trooper, please don't stop me
Please don't stop me, please don't stop me

In the wee wee hours your mind gets hazy
Radio relay towers lead me to my baby
Radio's jammed up with talk show stations
It's just talk, talk, talk, talk, till you lose your patience
Mister state trooper, please don't stop me
Please don't stop me, please don't you stop me

Hey, somebody out there, listen to my last prayer
Hi ho silver-o deliver me from nowhere
