SLOW TRAIN COMIN'     BOB DYLAN

          Am Dm Am (x2)


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

                                               F7               Dm
                               And there's a slow, slow train comin'
                                              Am
                               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 you have to quit your mess and straighten out
          You could die down here and be just another accident statistic."

                               And 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 into Paris

                               And there's a slow, slow train comin'
                               Up around the bend...
                                                *Solo*  (verse & chorus)

          Man's ego is inflated - his laws are outdated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
          You know it costs more to store the food than it does 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

                               And 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 bothers me to see my loved ones turning into puppets
                             
                               And there's a slow, slow train comin'
                               Up around the bend...
                                                *Solo*  (verse & chorus)
