    Naw, but I am. :D What's the train connection in that Dylan song? (Jimi's version is a cover)
    My favourite by Dylan, as far as trains, anyway, is "It takes a lot to laugh it takes a train to cry"
    A few others:
    "Love in Vain" - Rolling Stones
    "White Room" - Cream
    "Born on the Bayou" - "Midnight Special" - CCR
    "Memphis Blues" - Dylan
    "Tuxedo Junction" - Glen Miller
    "Take the 'A' Train" - Count Basie
    "Canadian Railroad Trilogy" - Gordon Lightfoot
    "Locomotive Breath" - Jethro Tull
    "Kiss Her Goodbye" - Steam (the song has nothin' to do with trains, but ya gotta love the band's name.:thumb:
