Train to Memphis

Story Behind The Song

Lars sent me the lyrics, and it screamed Elvis! With my Beatles-type background too, the song wrote itself. With a blues lyric like this, I could have gone for a slow blues but hey, let's rock!

Song Description

I got on the last train from Frisco,
Free but moody blue.
Worried sleepless through the night
´Cause I´m coming back to you.

1: Train, train to Memphis
Rolling down the line,
Train, train to Memphis
Please, leave my blues behind.

And the song tells a story from there...
