The Lyrics

"Hello, I'm Mike Pacholek, and this is a song by Johnny Cash!" For Royce Miller, who said she loved it when I did his songs.
Well, you taught 8 million people how to choke!
Your smokestacks blow pollution, and that ain't no joke!
And the tears I cried for that woman
are gonna flood you, big highway
and right there, on Route 1, I'm gonna croak!

She cut me off on George Washington Bridge's lower level
and it tore me up when she gunned that Pontiac Trans Am!
Then I heard that dame was all aflame, cavortin' by Newark Airport
and I followed you, big highway, through the jam!

Well, I hit Elizabeth, that's the city, not the woman
and I almost caught her drivin' through Rahway, right away!
But when Route 9 merged out, lost in Woodbridge Mall traffic
and it's more than sales tax that I gotta pay!

Well, I caught her and we downed some steaks at Edison's Outback
but she gave me the slip in New Brunswick, New Brunswick!
So she just had to roam past Trenton's capitol dome
and she loves you, big highway, more than me!

Well, you taught 8 million people how to choke!
Your smokestacks blow pollution, and that ain't no joke!
And it would be much too silly
if I followed her down to Philly
and right there, on Route 1, I'm gonna croak!
