Long Train Running

Lyrics: Tom Johnston
Music: Tom Johnston

Played by Jerry Garcia with Reconstruction, I think always as an instrumental. The original was by the Doobie Brothers, with lyrics:

Down around the corner half a mile from here
See them old trains running and you watch them disappear
Without love where would you be now
Without love

You know I saw Miss Lucy down along the track
Lost her home and her family and she won't be comin' back
Without love, where would you be now
Without love

Down the Illinois central and the southern central freight
Gotta keep on pushing mama cos you know we're runnin' late
Without love, where would you be now
Without love

Where pistons keeps on turnin' and the wheels go round and round
And the steel rails are cold and hard and the mountains, they go down
Without love, where would you be now
Without love

Ooh, where would you be now
Ooh gotta get that baby, gotta move it now
Gotta keep on movin', keep on movin'
[etc]
Recordings
There is a version by Merl Saunders (with Ed Neumeister, who also played with Reconstruction) on the 1979 album "Do I Move You".
