traffic jam lyrics – james taylor

d*mn this traffic jam
how i hate to be late
it hurts my motor to go so slow
d*mn this traffic jam
time i get home my supper’ll be cold
d*mn this traffic jam

well i left my job about 5 o’clock
it took fifteen minutes go three blocks
just in time to stand in line
with a freeway looking like a parking lot

– chorus –

now i almost had a heart attack
looking in my rear view mirror
i saw myself the next car back
looking in the rear view mirror
’bout to have a heart attack
i said

– chorus –

now when i die i don’t want no coffin
i thought about it all too often
just strap me in behind the wheel
and bury me with my automobile

– chorus –


now i used to think that i was cool
running around on fossil fuel
until i saw what i was doing
was driving down the road to ruin
