It Takes a Lot to Laugh It Takes a Train to Cry
Bob Dylan Lyrics


Well, I ride on a mail train, baby, can't buy a thrill
Well, I been up all night leanin' on the windowsill
Well, if I die on top of the hill
And if I don't make it, you know my baby will

Don't the moon look good, mama, shinin' through the trees
Don't the brakemen look good, mama, flaggin' down the "Double-E"
Don't the sun look good goin' down over the sea
But don't my gal look fine when she's comin' after me
Now, the wintertime is comin', the windows are filled with frost
I went to tell everybody but I could not get across
Well, I want to be your lover, baby, I don't want to be your boss
Don't say I never warned you when your train gets lost

Well, I ride on a mailtrain, baby

Can’t buy a thrill

Well, I’ve been up all night, baby

Leanin’ on the windowsill

Well, if I die

On top of the hill

And if I don’t make it

You know my baby will



Don’t the moon look good, mama

Shinin’ through the trees?

Don’t the brakeman look good, mama

Flagging down the “Double E?”

Don’t the sun look good

Goin’ down over the sea?

Don’t my gal look fine

When she’s comin’ after me?



Now the wintertime is coming

The windows are filled with frost

I went to tell everybody

But I could not get across

Well, I wanna be your lover, baby

I don’t wanna be your boss

Don’t say I never warned you

When your train gets lost



Михаил Сергопольцев

"Так много надобно для смеха, но хватит поезда для слёз "

На почтовом я еду детка,
Тряску искупил до дна,
Я не спал всю ночь, детка,
Просидел всю ночь у окна.
Если умру на краю полотна,
Так и не достигнув цели,
Моя детка доберётся одна.

Месяц не плохо, мама,
Сквозь ветки льёт свет.
Кондуктор не плох ,мама,
Он шлёт нам флажком привет.
Солнце неплохо,мама,
Стелет над морем рассвет.
Милая моя прекрасна,
Когда идёт за мною вслед.

Сейчас зима наступает,
Окна покрыл мороз,
Я был готов открыться всем,
Но мне не удалось.
Я хочу быть любимым, детка,
А не только владеть, как босс.
И не говори ,что не знала,
Что твой поезд идёт по откос.

Bob Dylan was born under a table in a Southern blues bar. He was 1000 years old at birth. The bartender handed him a harmonica and he blasted the night away.

Always felt underrated to me, it's one of my favorite blues rock jams ever

Dylan Melton

The Groom’s Still Waiting At The Altar gives me the same feeling.

@Kat Masterson mail-train, not milk-train. Passenger trains were a primary means of transporting the US Mail until 1967.(This came out in '65)

Sometimes I wanna be your boss, and if you’re willing to try, I might like it.
