Not sure of the title, but the last line is, "You're running someone off the road."

I'm trying to learn it for some jam sessions. It's how I feel about driving lately, especially in Dallas!

SWERVIN' IN MY LANE
(Robert Earl Keen, Jr.)

G G A G G A    

A D A
Sometimes I don't know what I'm doin'
A E A
'Cause sometimes all my days are filled with rain.
A D
As I travel down life's highway, things ain't goin' my way
A E A
'Cause there's always someone swervin' in my lane.

CHORUS:
A D A
You keep a-swervin' in my lane, and it's causin' lots of danger.
E A
I'm a-honkin' on my horn. I'm a-shootin' you the finger.
D A
I keep a-switchin' on my bright lights, but you're just too dim to know
A E A
When you're swervin' on life's highway, you're runnin' someone off the road.

The day you drove away, I thought I never
Could love another. How else could I feel?
But now when you run into me, I can't believe I could not see.
You're all tanked up, but no one's at the wheel.

CHORUS: You keep a-swervin' in my lane and it's causin' lots of danger.
I'm a-cussin' out your name. I'm a-shootin' you the finger.
I keep a-switchin' on my bright lights, but you're just too dim to know,
When you're swervin' on life's highway, you're runnin' someone off the road.

When and if I ever finally pass you,
Oh, when I do and if I'm still alive,
I want to never see you, cause I'm rippin' out my rearview,
And I'm shiftin' it on into overdrive.

CHORUS: But you're still swervin' in my lane and it's causin' lots of danger.
I'm a-stompin' on the foot-feed. I'm a-shootin' you the finger.
I keep a-switchin' on my bright lights, but you're just too dim to know
When you're swervin' on life's highway, you're runnin' someone off the road.

[Recorded by Robert Earl Keen, Jr. on "No Kinda Dancer," 1984; the Geezinslaws on "Geezinslaws," 1989; and Orrin Star on "Fun Songs & Fancy Pickin'," 1990.]
