Album: Green River (1969)
  • Traffic in the city turns my head around
    No, no, no, no, no.
    Backed up on the freeway, backed up in the church,
    Everywhere you look there's a frown, frown

    Com, commotion,
    Git, git, git, gone
    Com, commotion,
    Git, git, git, gone

    People keep atalkin', they don't say a word
    Jaw, jaw, jaw, jaw, jaw
    Talk up in the White House, talk up to your door,
    So much goin' on I just can't hear

    Com, commotion,
    Git, git, git, gone
    Com, commotion,
    Git, git, git, gone

    Hurryin' to get there so you save some time.
    Run, run, run, run, run
    Rushin' to the treadmill, rushin' to get home,
    Worry 'bout the time you save, save

    Com, commotion,
    Git, git, git, gone
    Com, commotion,
    Git, git, git, gone

    Com, commotion,
    Git, git, git, goneWriter/s: JOHN CAMERON FOGERTY
