THE INTERSECTION LEFT TURN BLUES


THE INTERSECTION LEFT TURN BLUES

(Tune:  “Winnsboro Cottonmill Blues,” sung by Pete Seegar)

 

CHORUS:

I got the Blues,

I got the Blues,

I got those Intersection-left-turn Blues!

Some folks don’t know how to drive—

Somehow they manage to stay alive,

They’d better learn fast or we both will die!

 

Stopped at a light a-waiting green,

Another car a-waiting in the left turning lane…

She’s way back behind the line,

Is she gonna get out to turn in time?

 

Lady waits until it’s green for us,

Traffic gets snarled and some drivers cuss….

She could have inched to the middle in time

To make her turn without a bind!

 

Our line starts and then she goes

Into our stream with a bucket of woes…

Her little boy looks really scared

And some of us drivers get more silver-haired!

 

We got through it—so did she—

Driver education needs psychology,

A little aggression  can be good

To avoid residing in a box of wood.

—Jonathan Caswell

I think training needs to emphasize to the ladies and anyone hesitant enough to need it, that it’s okay to be a little more aggressive taking a left turn…and turning on the yellow…or at least moving forward then…not after the other guy has the green!
