Lyrics

I turned your whole card upside down
I caught you cheatin' and runnin' around
There's a smile upon your face while another takes my place
And now at last, dear, the truth I'd found

Babe, there's the green light, you're free to go
You take the high road, I'll take the low
Here's your coat and shoes and don't forget your blues
Your own canoe now you'll have to row

Babe, there's the green light, shift your gears
I know you fooled me for all these years
I'll hold my head up high, and I'll forget you by and by
And there'll be laughter instead of tears

Babe, there's the green light, kick up your heels
There'll come a day you'll know how it feels
To have your aces trumped and be taken for a chump
Now there's the green light, so spin your wheels
