A It's raining in my coffee cup
D Comin down since I got up today
A Cold and gray
A And lookin in my rear view mirror
D I could be anywhere but here I am
A Traffic jam

E All these people without names
D Every day we face the same routine
A Waiting for the light to turn green

A The lady in the blue sedan
D Combs her hair and steals a glance at me
A Who is she
A Does anybody hold her tight
D A Or does she spend her days and nights at home
All alone

E And over in the passing zone
E D All wrapped up inside their own daydreams
A They're waiting for the light to turn green
E Do they wonder who I am
D Do they know I'm not some d___ machine
A Waiting for the light to turn green

SOLO

A What about the love I long for
D What about the child I want someday
A Where are they
A What about my hearts desire
A D What about these four bald tires I'm on
A How long
E I've been going nowhere fast
D Running out of time and gasoline
A Waiting for the light to turn green
E I'll be d___ed if I'll grow old
D Waiting for the wheels to roll not me
A Waiting for the light to turn green
A It's raining in my coffee cup
D A Comin down since I got up today
