State Trooper
Lyrics and Meaning


Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
New jersey turnpike ridin' on a wet night
'neath the refinery's glow, out where the great black rivers 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...
Verse 2
Maybe you got a kid maybe you got a pretty wife, the only thing that I got's been botherin' me my whole life
Mister state trooper please don't stop me
Verse 3
In the wee, wee hours your mind get hazy, radio relay towers lead me to my baby
Radio's jammed up with talk show stations
It's just talk, talk till you lose your patience
Mister state trooper please don't stop me
Verse 4
Hey somebody out there, listen to my last prayer
Hi ho silver-o deliver me from nowhere
