MJ Darl​!​ng - I Took The Train (To New Orleans)

by STARSH!P: Recordings

/

about

MJ Darl!ng wrote, produced, and sang this charming ode to New Orleans, and taking the Crescent Line railway to get to her.

Not his usual style, Contemporary Rock, but authentically felt, nonetheless, with soulful crooning over electric guitar, a driving percussion, and slick fretless bass, creating a nostalgic feel, signature of MJ's charged, and ever-unique sound.

lyrics

VERSE 1:
Hey, little girl,
why are you crying?
Don't you know you make
the world - cry along?

Hey pretty girl,
no you're not dying;
its just the distance
between us, is oh so wrong.

CHORUS:
I took the train to New Orleans
Just because I had to
see your face again.

So I took a train
Headed for New Orleans,
'Cos I could never leave you standing in the rain.

VERSE 2:
Hey little girl,
I bought my ticket;
You know by Friday
I'll be riding out to you.

Hey pretty girl,
no way I'd miss it,
cos maybe I could find
some inspiration too.

CHORUS:
I took the train to New Orleans
Just because I had to
see your face again.

So I took a train
Headed for New Orleans,
'Cos I could never leave you standing in the rain.

BRIDGE:
From Treme, to over on Frenchman Street,
where the old and salty dogs
and cool musicians meet.

From the Quar---ter
to the Ma--rigny,
by your side, and in your bed
is where I'd rather be.

CHORUS:
I took the train to New Orleans
Just because I had to
see your face again.

So I took a train
Headed for New Orleans,
'Cos I could never leave you standing in the rain.
(Repeat 2x)
