I'm sittin' on this train and I'm ridin' home, ridin' home
I'm sittin' on this train and I'm ridin' home, ridin' home
I've got my bag and I'm ready to go, I wish this train didn't move so slow
I'm sittin' on this train and I'm ridin' home, ridin' home

This train don't move like it used to, ridin' home
This train don't move like it used to, ridin' home
This train don't move down the railroad trac, Fast enough to get my baby back
This train don't move like it used to, ridin' home

Love super compact songs as much as I love those that stretch out forever.  The three-minute song can be great, of course, but it's like having to write an essay with an introduction, 3 paragraphs, and a conclusion.  Same goes for abacab.  Why?
I don't know any bowlegged gypsy muleskinners, but I sure want to......

He was a great songwriter. But I didn't care for him as a performer at all.

Heard Dire Straits & thought of JJ Cale,,,,,& here he is!
JJ's second, love the whole album
"Lies" is real good 
So so so MISS Mr. J.J.  A man who was so appreciated by me and many, of that I am sure, but who did not get the great credit he deserved for his amazing influence on the blues and heartland sound.

too accessible for me, too bubblegummy.  2
Lush spareness.
Very sad to lose JJ - what a songwriting genius
RIP JJ.  Enjoy the ride home.  Time to listen to all my records again.

I get the theme, Bill. I'M HOME!

Aren't we all trying to get back home, Jojo?
I notice 30 of JJ's tracks in the RP library --- barely scratches the surface. JJ makes music for the ages.
Very cool. Nice silent film/saloon sounding piano in the background, it adds to the mood. :bananapiano:
Cool and soulful
