A country blues kind of feel. Basically it’s a description of my drive to work from Pedro to Burbank, through the middle of downtown LA. Fun Song for me

LYRICS

Headin to the 110,
Start on Gaffey st
Love to see the harbor,
The view can’t be beat
Watchin out for people
Walkin in the road
Pickup trucks and busses
It’s a heavy load

Getting through the stoplights
One by One
Try to keep my cool
But this aint no fun
Just got on the freeway
Start to feel fine
Finally get some open road
I Let the engine wind

I love drivin in my car
When no one is around
Love drivin on the freeway
Not so much in town
I like the windows open,
Wind blown through my hair
No one else in front of me
Drivin to nowhere
Love drivin in my car
Love drivin in my car

Now i’m on the Harbor
Passin PCH
Cruising in the passing lane
80 MPH
Some weenie in a Prius
Likes to tailgate
I think I’ll be nice today
And change my lane

Runnin late for woik,
But the car feels good
It’s nice to have the power
Underneath the hood
Past the 91
Past the 105
Jump in the express lanes
I Start to feel alive

Love drivin in my car
When no one is around
Love drivin on the freeway
Not so much in town
I like the windows open,
Wind blown through my hair
No one else in front of me
Drivin to nowhere
Love drivin in my car
Love drivin in my car

Getting to the 10,
Everything thing stops
Crawling to the 101
Then it opens up
Getting to the tunnels
Cal trans and a wreck
Break lights WHATUP
KNX?

Connector to the 5
Got to slow down
A wall of trucks
Comin from downtown
Almost into Burbank
Finally I’m movin
One more spot at Olive
Then I’m where I’m goin

Love drivin in my car
When no one is around
Love drivin on the freeway
Not so much in town
I like the windows open,
Wind blown through my hair
No one else in front of me
Drivin to nowhere
Love drivin in my car
Love drivin in my car
