Hear My Train a Comin'

  • Hear my train a comin'
    Wait around the train station
    Waitin' for that train
    Take me
    Take me away
    From this lonesome time
    A whole lot of people put me through a lot of changes
    And my girl done put me down

    Tears burnin' me
    Burnin' me
    Way down in my soul
    Way down in my heart
    It's too bad you don't love no more, child
    Too bad you and me have to part, have to part baby
    Have to part

    Hear my train is coming
    Hear my train is coming
    Hear my train is coming
    Hear my train is coming

    Gonna make it bigger
    With all that's still in my heart
    Gonna be a magic boy ooh child
    Gonna come back and buy this town
    An' put it all in my shoe
    In my shoe baby
    You make love to me one more time girl
    So I give a piece to you baby
    Hey hey hey

    Hear my train is coming
    Hear my train is coming
    Here come the rest of my soul
    Movin' through the washer baby
    Hear my train a comin' yeah yeahWriter/s: Jimi Hendrix

  • Marcus from Columbia, MoThe Isle of Wright footage is way sweet. I saw it on Netflix and just thought it was a great performance. And the video for this song above is awesome. I hope they keep releasing material from Hendrix.
  • Jorge from Bronx, NyI'am glad to own this compilations of Blues,of The Man,The Myth,The Legend,,many other greats plus a few covers,He was a master of recording a cover and make sound greater than the original.I also have DVD in Isle of Wight,,superb concert footage.
  • Kevin from Los Angeles, Ca..on Band of Gypsys 2 he calls it 'Lonesome Train'.
  • Oldpink from New Castle, InUh, if you click the link above, you will find the very 12-string acoustic footage of Jimi. This is one of the VERY few recordings of Jimi on acoustic, and he is as comparably good on that instrument as one could ever hope.
    Watching and listening to this, it is readily evident that Jimi knew quite well which side his bread was buttered on...steeped in the blues.
  • G from Potomac, MdWhen he introduces it on Band of Gypsys he calls it by another name, "Slow Train" or something like that.
  • Sam from Seattle, Wain the "Jimi Hendrix" movie, there is a video of him playing this song, with no band, on a 12-string acoustic guitar
