Lyrics
On Saturday night when our work is done
We load our music up on the run
Heavy traffic ahead, heavy traffic ahead
We got to ramble, ramble, there's heavy traffic ahead

We pull out of Nashville right on time
The Bluegrass special heads down the line
Heavy traffic ahead, heavy traffic ahead
We got to ramble, ramble, there's heavy traffic ahead

We traveled around from state to state
The Bluegrass boys are never late
Heavy traffic ahead, heavy traffic ahead
We got to ramble, ramble, there's heavy traffic ahead

Late in the evening about sundown
You know we've come from some other town
Heavy traffic ahead, heavy traffic ahead
We got to ramble, ramble, there's heavy traffic ahead

We do our work with a good will
On Friday night we head for Nashville
Heavy traffic ahead, heavy traffic ahead
We got to ramble, ramble, there's heavy traffic ahead
