Train Round The Bend
The Velvet Underground Lyrics


Train round the bend
Takin me away from my country
I'm sick of the trees
Take me to the city
Train comin' round the bend
Oh train comin' round the bend

Been in the country
Oh much too long
Trying to be a farmer
But nothing that I planted
Never seems to grow
Train comin' round the bend
Train comin' round the bend

Hey I am just a city boy
And really not the country kind
Oh I need the city streets
And I need your light
To see bend comin' round the bend
The train comin' round the bend

Alright
Ooh Ohh

Once
She's going twice
She's going to the loop
Up and down
She's going twice
She's going the train
Comin' round the bend
You know the train
Comin' round the bend

And I'm out of nowhere
Takin' me back where I belong
I've been here once
And I don't take it tonight
For the train comin' round the bend
The train comin' round the bend
Oh alright!

Train round the bend
Takin me away from my country
I'm sick of the trees
Take me to the city
Train comin' round the bend
Oh train comin' round the bend
.
Been in the country
Oh much too long
Trying to be a farmer
But nothing that I planted
Never seems to grow
Train comin' round the bend
Train comin' round the bend
.
Hey I am just a city boy
And really not the country kind
Oh I need the city streets
And I need your light
To see bend comin' round the bend
The train comin' round the bend

Alright
Ooh Ohh

Once
She's going twice
She's going to the loop

She's going twice
She's going the train
Comin' round the bend
You know the train
Comin' round the bend

And I'm out of nowhere
Takin' me back where I belong
I've been here once
And I don't take it tonight
For the train comin' round the bend
The train comin' round the bend
Oh alright!

Apparently Lou's college roommate had thrown himself in front of a train and lost an arm and leg but lived. And then Lou writes a song about a train coming round the bend. Yikes.

Boe

Yikes.

This and Coney Island Steeplechase are my favorite VU songs. I know they're not the best, but they have the attitude, you know, and are way ahead of their time. And I love how in 'Train' Lou actually sings the song as if he's losing his mind. Wailing off key, whether by design or not, works with the song's theme. The ironic lyrics, the cool riff - it's so raw and I love it.

Oh, and I thought I was the only one who properly paid attention to Coney Island Steeplechase! It's just a great thing, and I think it the ahead of its time bass line I've ever heard. Seriously, if you do not pay attention to some nuances, this track is not even considered to be 90's, it is a real modernity

Reminds me of a mildly less insane Legendary Stardust Cowboy. I don't think anyone was losing his mind quite like the cowboy though.

Love this psychedelic classic rock and roll they made. it sounds like a fusión from the early 60' rock and the post 66 era

DanR

Nothing psychedelic about it. You're thinking of the Jefferson Airplane or something.

I I

This no sounds so

Kevin Camp

Stuck in neutral in the minor leagues, with great goals and not much success to show for it. I'm sick of the trees, take me to the city. I've been here once...
