we dream, we create, we change, we love

All Aboard!

Today I will be singing Dylan songs that refer to trains in honor of National Train Day. Starting with House of the Rising Sun and Freight Train Blues – even though those were only covered by Bob, he did them justice. Ditto “I Was Young When I Left Home” from No Direction Home. Putting my ear to the tracks in Trouble and charming the whistle in Silvio, then riding out on Bob Dylan’s Dream and It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry and I’ll Keep It with Mine and Paths of Victory and Little Sadie and Goin’ to Acapulco and Down in the Flood and Stack A Lee and Sittin’ On Top of the World and Something’s Burning, Baby and of course Slow Train. And Honey, Just Allow Me One More Chance When I Paint My Masterpiece to come Standing in the Doorway and ask Where Are You Tonight? Even what Mona tried to warn about in Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again, and even those two men in I and I, and and even his memory of that Brownsville Girl, and even his Last Thoughts on Woodie Guthrie. And I’ll throw in Visions of Johanna‘s D train and the caboose from Only a Pawn In Their Game for good measure. And everything else in between from Simple Twist of Fate and Train A-Travelin‘ and Ballad for a Friend and John Brown and Poor Boy Blues beyond to Gypsy Lou and to Walk Out In The Rain and to Silent Weekend and to Things Have Changed and to When the Deal Goes Down.

I will polish up my memorandum on how the safety valve cannot be used to excuse discrimintory plan amendments.

Gertie will get a clean cage today. And I will clip some more of the foliage in the back yard. After which I will take the first pool dip of the season.
