  • There's a crash on the Highway today
    "Nobody's going anywhere" they say
    It could be you up there
    So you better say your prayers
    And take it easy on your narrow way

    And we can't make it to our gig on time
    So we pull over and we drink some wine
    They got a five car pile up in Rosenheim
    Oh, driver take me down the line

    Germany's been cold and mean
    I wanna get home to New Orleans
    Me and my baby all we do is fight
    Take me back home to BJ's on a Monday night

    They got these two-dollar coins here, man
    Some people say this is the promised land
    But me, I'm happy in some southern bar
    Just in the corner playin' my guitar

    Oh there's a crash on the highway today
    "Nobody's going anywhere" they say
    Man, it could be you up there
    So you better say your prayers
    And take it easy on your narrow way

    All dressed up with nowhere to go
    I'm feelin' like the last stand at the Alamo
    Man, I ain't got nothin' but time
    And I got Louisiana on my mind

    Oh there's a crash on the highway today
    Nobody's goin' anywhere they say
    It could be you up there
    So you better say your prayers
    And take it easy on your narrow way
    And take it easy on your narrow way Writer/s: Alynda Segarra
