"Mourning Train" as written by and Jakob Dylan....
Mama don't 'you send me no love this month
'cause my heart is all used up
And mama I want to come home
I want to get back home

So look out into the morning rain
'cause I'm on the mourning train

I'm bringing down my suitcase now
I'm shining up my good shoes brown
'cause no-one knows my name
Now, no-one knows my name
So look out into the morning rain
'cause I'm on the mourning train

Mama look at me now
Oh how I wish
You were around
So many friends I wish
I had right now

Mister you can't hurt me now
You've got my girl, I still don't know how
But it don't matter now
No it don't matter now
So look out into the morning rain
'cause I'm on,
I'm already on
The mourning train

    General CommentThis song just amazes me. Such a country feel, and yet so good. just amazing. It must be in the Dylan blood.

    General CommentThis song is amazing and it must be in the Dylan blood because I can totally imagine Bob singing this song. This song is amazing and the album Breach is definitiely one more masterpiece from the Wallflowers.

    General CommentI love how he changes morning train to mourning train, very clever.

    Mister you can't hurt me now
    You've got my girl
    I still don't know how
    But it don't matter now
    No it don't matter now

    Sounds like someone left someone for another person, but that other person is a real jerk, I know how it is.
