got a wife and five little chillun
I'm gonna take a trip on the big McMillan
With Sarah Jane
Sarah Jane
Ain't nothin' to do
But to set down and sing
And rock about my Sarah Jane

The boiler busted and the whistle squall
The Captain gone through the hole-in-the-wall
Oh Sarah Jane
Sarah Jane
Ain't nothin' to do
But to set down and sing
And rock about my Sarah Jane

The engine give a crack and the whistle gave a squall
The engineer gone to the hole-in-the-wall
Sarah Jane
Sarah Jane
Ain't nothin' to do
But to set down and sing
And rock about my Sarah Jane

Yankee built boats to shoot them Rebels
My gun's steady gonna hold it level
Sarah Jane
Sarah Jane
But to set down and sing
And rock about my Sarah Jane

I got a wife and five little chillun
I'm gonna take a trip on the big McMillan
Sarah Jane
Sarah Jane
Ain't nothin' to do
But to set down and sing
And rock about my Sarah Jane

    General CommentThe only original song on the 1973 Dylan compilation album. Seems pretty autobiographical if you ask me.

    Sarah Jane is Sara Dylan?
    Dylan had four children with Sara, as well as adopting her child from her previous marriage.
