New Jersey Turnpike
Riding on a wet night
Beneath the refinery's glow
Out where the great black rivers flow
License, registration
I ain't got none
But I got a clear conscience
About 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've got a kid
Maybe you've 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
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 stop me

Anybody out there
Listen to my last prayer
Hi-ho silver
Deliver me from nowhere
