Am
New Jersey Turnpike, ridin' on a wet night 
  D                                       Am
`neath the refin'ry's glow out where the great black rivers flow

License, registration: I ain't got none
       D                                Am
But I got a clear conscience `bout the things that I done

Mister state trooper, please don't stop me
  D                    Am
Please don't stop me, please don't stop me


Maybe you got a kid, maybe you got a pretty wife
   D                                             Am
The only thing that I got's been both'rin' me my whole life

Mister state trooper, please don't stop me
  D                     Am
Please don't stop me, please don't stop me


In the wee, wee hours your mind get hazy
D                   Am
Radio relay towers lead me to my baby

The radio's jammed up with talk show stations
           D                                   Am
It's just talk, talk, talk, talk, till you lose your patience

Mister state trooper, please don't stop me

Am 
Oooooh Oooooh

Hey, somebody out there, listen to my last prayer

Hiho silver-o, deliver me from nowhere

Oooooh

About the artist behind State Trooper Tab:

Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen (born September 23, 1949) is an American songwriter, singer and guitarist. He has recorded and toured with the E Street Band. Springsteen is widely known for his brand of heartland rock infused with pop hooks, poetic lyrics, and Americana sentiments centered around his native New Jersey. His eloquence in expressing ordinary, everyday problems has earned him numerous awards, including eighteen Grammy Awards and an Academy Award, along with a notoriously dedicated and devoted global fan base. His most famous albums, Born to Run and Born in the U.S.A., epitomize his penchant for finding grandeur in the struggles of daily life. He has sold over 65 million albums in the U.S.[1]

Springsteen's lyrics often concern men and women struggling to make ends meet. He has gradually become identified with progressive politics. Springsteen is also noted for his support of various relief and rebuilding efforts in New Jersey and elsewhere, and for his response to the September 11, 2001 attacks, on which his album The Rising reflects.

Springsteen's recordings have tended to alternate between commercially accessible rock albums and somber folk-oriented works. Much of his iconic status stems from the concerts and marathon shows in which he and the E Street Band present intense ballads, rousing anthems, and party rock and roll songs, amongst which Springsteen intersperses long, whimsical or deeply emotional stories.

Springsteen has long had the nickname "The Boss", a term which he was initially reported to hate but now seems to have come to terms with, as he sometimes jokingly refers to himself as such on stage. The nickname originated when a young Springsteen, playing club gigs with a band in the 1960s, took on the task of collecting the band's nightly pay and distributing it amongst his bandmates.[2]
