“You Can’t Get There From Here”
Copyright Maureen Condon 2007


I was driving down to Nashville, heading in on 65,
When I had to slam my brakes on, and pray that I’d survive!
They were diggin’ up the highway and the detour signs were clear:
Oh, you can’t get there from here!

Chorus: No, you can’t get there from here,
Though your line of sight is clear.
The highway’s blocked and traffic’s come full stop,
And an endless sea of brake lights is screaming loud and clear:
Oh, you can’t get there from here!

‘Bout a half a dozen traffic cops were pointing out the way:
“Go left, go right, straight down that ramp - we swear we know what’s best!”
But, before I knew it I was caught, on Nashville’s biggest parking lot!
I was on 440 West.

Chorus: And, you can’t get there from here,
Though your line of sight is clear.
The highway’s blocked and traffic’s come full stop,
And an endless sea of brake lights is screaming loud and clear:
Oh, you can’t get there from here!

I went sneakin’ down the breakdown lane, bookin’ precious time,
When that trooper up ahead forced me to squeeze back into line.
Now there’s a biker on my windshield, and a trucker up my rear,
And I can’t get there from here.

Chorus: No, you can’t get there from here,
Though your line of sight is clear.
The highway’s blocked and traffic’s come full stop,
And an endless sea of brake lights is screaming loud and clear:
Oh, you can’t get there from here!

I was parked 3 hours on 24, when my radiator burst.
The trooper stuck beside me said “This jam-up is the worst!”
Then he opened up his cooler and he handed me a beer,
‘Cause we can’t get there from here!

Chorus: No, you can’t get there from here,
Though your line of sight is clear.
The highway’s blocked and traffic’s come full stop,
And an endless sea of brake lights is screaming loud and clear:
Oh, you can’t get there from here!
