Junior Brown – Highway Patrol

So watch out what you’re doin’ when you’re drivin’ my way
If you break the law, you’ll hear from me, I know
I work all day and I work all night
I’m a-workin’ for the state, I’m The Highway Patrol
A gun on my hip and the right to arrest
‘Cause if you try and run away I’m gonna bring ya back
Just a-keepin’ law and order, tryin’ to do what’s right

Well, you’ll know me when you see me, ’cause my door’s painted white,
If I write you out a ticket, then you’d better drive slow
But I’ll do my best to keep you driving slow
If you wanna race then get on a race track,
I’m the highway patrol, the highway patrol,
I’m the highway patrol, the highway patrol,
I’m the guy who’s the boss on this highway
My hours are long, and my pay is low

I’m just a-doin’ my job, I’m The Highway Patrol
I’m just a-doin’ my job, I’m The Highway Patrol
I’m just a-doin’ my job
I got a star on my car and one on my chest,
I’m just a-doin’ my job, I’m The Highway Patrol
My siren a-screamin’ and my flashin’ red lights
But I’ll do my best to keep you driving slow
I’m here to keep all the speeders driving slow

I’m just a-doin’ my job, I’m The Highway Patrol
You can bet your boots, I’m comin’ after you
I’m The Highway Patrol
If your drivin’ to fast like you shouldn’t do,

My hours are long, and my pay is low
