      About "Nowhere Fast"

      Lyrics for The Warren Brothers - "Nowhere Fast"

      (
      I grew up here on Bourbon Street
      Playin' for the beer and tips
      Livin' by the Poncha Train
      Watchin' drunks and sailin' ships
      I'm sittin' on a midnight train
      Gonna bury momma on my birthday
      And never's gonna be too soon
      To see these streets of Vieux Carre'
      Thirty years ago
      Momma was a pretty bride
      She took this train to New Orleans
      Made a mask for Mardi Gras
      And never took it off it seems
      Daddy drank away their honeymoon
      He never wore his wedding band
      They fought just like a hurricane
      But she fell in love with Dixieland
      Now I'm on a train to nowhere
      To find the future in my past
      I'm on a train to nowhere
      Feelin' like a no one
      How long will this last?
      Goin' nowhere fast
      Nine months later to the day
      She labored deep into the night
      I was the baby in her arms
      And she was weakened by the fight
      I grew up fast I grew up hard
      The alleyways were my backyard
      Momma sang at Pat O'Riley's
      And I sat in with the band on Fridays
      Now I'm on a train to nowhere
      To find the future in my past
      I'm on a train to nowhere
      Feelin' like a no one
      How long will this last?
      Goin' nowhere fast
      Tonight we'll cross the Mason-Dixon line
      Finally takin' Momma home
      She will find a restin' place
      Beneath the garden made of stone
      And I came here to find tomorrow
      Now I hear my station name
      If I can just forget my past
      Maybe I can start again
      Now I'm on a train to nowhere
      To find the future in my past
      I'm on a train to nowhere
      But this trip will be my last
      Yeah if I can just get goin'
      And get myself on track
      Off this train to nowhere
      It's goin' nowhere fast...
