Baby I really wanna know
I think you should stop your crying
Heres my kerchief to dry your eyes
You know I love you

ruby here I am
come rub it 'pon my my belly like some guava jelly
damsel here I am
come rub it 'pon my belly like some guava jelly

this train, is bound for glory,
this train, here me talking bout,
this train, is bound for glory,
this train,
this train, is bound for glory,
this train, will carry no unholy

the stone that the builder refused
shall always be the head corner stone
the stone that the builder refused
shall always be the head corner stone

Your a builder baby
Here I am a stone
don't mean to confuse you girl
cause the things you should use
are the things we should choose
can you hear me?
hear what i say

This train is bound for glory,
this train
This train is bound for glory,
this train
This train is bound for glory,
this train
This train will carry no unholy
Cause I, I just cant be sad....

    General CommentI love this song, it almost brings me to tears and Bradley did a wicked job covering Marley who definitely had hard shoes to fill.

    General Commentcould have something to do with hopping trains :)

    I don't know if Brad ever lived a freeloader life, but with him being into punk as a kid I wouldn't be surprised. People hop trains traveling around meeting new people and hoping to find a better life somewhere else.

    General CommentI always thought 'the stone that the builder refuse, shall always be the headcorner stone" meant when somebody think's there to good for you or better than you and you end up the "headcorner stone". or something to that effect. Or am I way off?

    General CommentYou're sortta right..."The stone that the builder refused, shall always be the headcorner stone" line is a parabol from the bible; Jesus is refurring to himself as the headcorner stone
