B
Everybody's been a long time talking

Ain't nobody said a word that's true
A
Ain't it time to stop this crap type talking
E
Won't you tell us what you're gonna do

Heavy traffic is bringing me down

[Main Riff]

Every time I see the red light burning
Don't it always make the air turn blue
But until we see the red light turning
There ain't nothing anyone can do

We all dream about an open highway
Making dreams is all that we can do
We'd all move or not if I had my way
Nothing can stop me getting back to you

I wanna drive, yeah drive
I wanna drive but I can't get no-where
Heavy traffic all over this town
I wanna drive, yeah drive
I wanna drive I gotta get somewhere
Heavy traffic coming into this town

[The second half of the solo is pretty much the same, with some small variations]

I wanna drive, yeah drive
I wanna drive but I can't get no-where
Heavy traffic, all over this town
I wanna drive, yeah drive
I wanna drive I gotta get somewhere
Heavy traffic is bringing me down
Heavy traffic all over this town

Good! You really should consider showing Ricks shapes though. Remember Capo on 2!
