Song Description

The guy is stressed and worried, and he wants his girl back. He's on the train to Memphis thinking about his girlfriend and how she will react to his return. He's done time in jail, but now he's out and needs to find out if she still wants him.

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!


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...
