Question Hi all, Help me identify this song

I've wondered about this song for years. It dates late sixties to into the seventies. I must have heard it on top 40 AM radio or Rock FM station. I don't know the name, artist or any lyrics but It's about driving through LA at night. I think sitting at a traffic light is mentioned. Sings about listening to a preacher on the radio and I think something is said about Jesus. I've Googled many combinations of words and looked at pages and pages of hits and nothing. If anyone could help me with this it would be greatly appreciated.

Al in NM

Edit Male artist, maybe partially talked rather than sung, Thx

This has L.A. and a preacher but no driving so perhaps this is not what you are looking for:

Thanks

I've got that one. The one I'm looking for is a little bit more obscure.

All I did was copy/paste your question into google and this question was already asked in a forum back in 2009 in that forum.
Here was the answer;
"
Check out this web page.
http://pdhomes.net/music/isleofjersey/

About 16 paragraphs down, the writer references a song called "Not here, Not There". There's also a link to a recording of it.

Does that help?

And, according to this page of out-of-print sheet music, the song is from 1923.

"That's it! Thanks! I googled that song every which way and asked here...you found it in no time! "

try quoting a part of the lyrics. That way we can identify the song easier.
