Crosstown Traffic

(J. Hendrix)
Originally performed by the Jimi Hendrix Experience
Lead Singer: Isaac & Taylor



I'm not the only soul accused of hit and run
Tire tracks across your back
I can see you had your fun

See darlin' can't you see my signals turn from green to red
If you want to see a traffic jam look on straight ahead

You're just like crosstown traffic, so hard to get through you
Crosstown traffic, I don't need to run over you
Crosstown traffic, you try to slow me down
When I'm tryin' to get to the other side of town

You jump in front of my car when you know all the time
That ninety miles and hour baby, is the speed I drive
You say it's alright, you don't mind the pain
You just want to take me for a ride

You're just like crosstown traffic, so hard to get through you
Crosstown traffic, I don't need to run over you
Crosstown traffic, you try to slow me down
When I'm tryin' to get to the other side of town

You're just like crosstown traffic, so hard to get through you
Crosstown traffic, I don't need to run over you
Crosstown traffic, you try to slow me down
You're just like crosstown traffic, so hard
Crosstown traffic, you try
Crosstown traffic, you try to slow me down
Crosstown traffic
When I'm trying to get to the other side of town
