Four: Fifty-One

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: David Nelson

The four fifty one roars through my dreams
The four fifty one, babe, it rattles and screams
I could time my watch if my watch was in [lock]
By its shimmy, shimmy, shimmy and its rock, rock, rock

The four fifty one, now how about that
You can ride it flat on your back
Don't need a ticket, nothing to punch
Just stop in for dinner, and stick around for lunch

Lately I'm living on nothing but dreams
Maybe that ain't half as bad as it seems
I'm dreaming of you, dreaming it right
We rock and we rattle and we shake all night

Four fifty one, it's a barrel of laughs
Sitting on top, going yes, yes, yes
It's sweeter than honey on a honey-dew vine
Sweeter than money all [covered with time]

The four fifty one runs under the block
Speaks like an angel if an angel could talk
It don't wake me up, just sings in my dreams
With its shimmy, shimmy, shimmy, rattle and scream

Lately I'm living on nothing but dreams
Maybe that ain't half as bad as it seems
I'm dreaming of you, dreaming it right
We rock and we rattle and we shake all night

The four fifty one reminds me of you
Can't hit the high notes but it sure sing blue
Reminds me of the days, yes it puts me in mind
When we shimmy, shimmy, shimmy on the uptown line
