Stop That Train

Lyrics: Peter Tosh
Music: Peter Tosh

First played in the Jerry Garcia Band with Keith and Donna, then regularly with Melvin Seals

Chorus
Stop that train I'm leaving
Stop that train I'm leaving
Stop that train I'm leaving
And it won't be too long whether I'm right or wrong
It won't be too long whether I'm right or wrong

All my life I've been a lonely man
Tryin' to teach the people that won't understand
When I try to do my very best
I can't seem to find no happiness
So I say

[chorus]

Some travel east, y'know some travel west
Some try to do their very best
Some live in big, but y'know the most just live in small
They can't even find no food at all

[chorus]
[chorus]
