    i'm bored... add your own

    songs with train references

    "midnight train to georgia" -glady knight & the pips
    ~>he's leavin'... on that midnight train to georgia. said he's goin' back to find a simpler place in time...

    "folsom prison blues" -johnny cash
    ~>i hear the train a comin', it's rollin down the bend. and i aint seen the sunshine since i dont know when, i'm stuck in folsom prison and time keeps dragging on, but that train keeps on rollin' on down the san antone...

    "the locomotion" -little eva
    "come on, come on, do the locomotion with me. you gotta swing your hips now, come on baby, jump up, jump back. well i think you got the knack, whoa, whoa. now that you can do it, lets make a chain now. a chugga chugga motion like a railroad train now...

    "c'mon n' ride it (the train)" -quad city dj's
    ~>Way deep down south, well we play this game. it's them Quad City DJs and you, we call it the train, so if you wanna ride your thing, just come on down the train..

    "run away train" -soul asylum
    ~>run away train never going back.. wrong way on a one way track. seems like i should be getting somewhere, somehow i'm neither here nor there...

    "twice the first time" -saul williams
    ~>riding in a freight train, in the freezing rain listening to coltrane, my reality went insane...

    "abusing of the rib" -atmosphere
    ~>i wanna ride a train up my lovers arm. stop off at the brain to hop out and find out what's going on. cut thru trees and ride thru rocks and synchronize the universal sundial to my watch. i've seen a lot, but not quite as much as her. to top it off the memory and the imagination blur, but i know she's been put thru hell, i can feel it. and i know she's touched heaven as well, tryin' to steal it. but it came on and it taught her a song and strung her along, and it caught her when the guard was gone. now to the break of dawn, she's trying to feel that fix and all her family and friends is trying to seal them lips. but i ain't dumb i can hear that train come from miles away.. setting up obstacles to stop its arrival. i want to blow up that iron and wood road, from what i understood those be the orifice of its survival. my recital, another tantrum, cuz she's highly excitable, swinging moods at random. no happy endings, always off to a bad start. addictive, voyeuristic to the track marks...

    "downtown train" -mary chapin carpenter
    ~>will i see you tonight on a downtown train? where every night is just the same; you leave me lonely now...

    "clark gable" -the postal service
    ~>i was waiting for a cross-town train in the london underground when it struck me that i've been waiting since birth to find a love that would look and sound like a movie...

    "third engine" -saves the day
    ~>the sky grows bigger every day. and the other week i hopped on a train, cutting thru state lines to come to you as the crow flies... sometimes the train can't go as fast as i want it to...

    "the love train" s club 7
    ~>riding on a love train, making my way back to you baby. riding on a love train, cruising my way back to my baby's arms. riding on a love train...

    "its a mans world" -james brown
    ~>man made the car to take us over the road. man made the train to carry the heavy load...
