      About "Slow Train"

      Lyrics for Bob Dylan - "Slow Train"

      Sometimes I feel so low-down and disgusted
      Can't help but wonder what's happenin' to my companions
      Are they lost or are they found?
      Have they counted the cost it'll take to bring down
      All their earthly principles they're gonna have to abandon?
      There's a slow, slow train comin' up around the bend

      I had a woman down in Alabama
      She was a backwoods girl, but she sure was realistic
      She said, "Boy, without a doubt, have to quit your mess and straighten out
      You could die down here, be just another accident statistic"
      There's a slow, slow train comin' up around the bend

      All that foreign oil controlling American soil
      Look around you, it's just bound to make you embarrassed
      Sheiks walkin' around like kings, wearing fancy jewels and nose rings
      Deciding America's future from Amsterdam and to Paris
      And there's a slow, slow train comin' up around the bend

      Man's ego is inflated, his laws are outdated, they don't apply no more
      You can't rely no more to be standin' around waitin'
      In the home of the brave, Jefferson turnin' over in his grave
      Fools glorifying themselves, trying to manipulate Satan
      And there's a slow, slow train comin' up around the bend

      Big-time negotiators, false healers and woman haters
      Masters of the bluff and masters of the proposition
      But the enemy I see wears a cloak of decency
      All non-believers and men-stealers talkin' in the name of religion
      And there's a slow, slow train comin' up around the bend

      People starving and thirsting, grain elevators are bursting
      Oh, you know it costs more to store the food than it do to give it
      They say lose your inhibitions, follow your own ambitions
      They talk about a life of brotherly love
      Show me someone who knows how to live it
      There's a slow, slow train comin' up around the bend

      Well, my baby went to Illinois with some bad-talkin' boy she could destroy
      A real suicide case, but there was nothin' I could do to stop it
      I don't care about economy, I don't care about astronomy
      But it sure do bother me to see my loved ones turning into puppets
      There's a slow, slow train comin' up around the bend
