Trilogy: A Train, His Love + Saved

Slow Train Coming-+

Sometimes I feel so low-down and disgusted
Can’t help but wonder what’s happenin’ to my companions
Are they lost or are they found
Have they counted the cost it’ll take to bring down
All their earthly principles they’re gonna have to abandon?
There’s a slow, slow train comin’ up around the bend

I had a woman down in Alabama
She was a backwoods girl, but she sure was realistic
She said, “Boy, without a doubt
Have to quit your mess and straighten out
You could die down here, be just another accident statistic”
There’s a slow, slow train comin’ up around the bend

All that foreign oil controlling American soil
Look around you, it’s just bound to make you embarrassed
Sheiks walkin’ around like kings
Wearing fancy jewels and nose rings
Deciding America’s future from Amsterdam and to Paris
And there’s a slow, slow train comin’ up around the bend

Man’s ego is inflated, his laws are outdated, they don’t apply no more
You can’t rely no more to be standin’ around waitin’
In the home of the brave
Jefferson turnin’ over in his grave
Fools glorifying themselves, trying to manipulate Satan
And there’s a slow, slow train comin’ up around the bend

Big-time negotiators, false healers and woman haters
Masters of the bluff and masters of the proposition
But the enemy I see
Wears a cloak of decency
All nonbelievers and men stealers talkin’ in the name of religion
And there’s a slow, slow train comin’ up around the bend

People starving and thirsting, grain elevators are bursting
Oh, you know it costs more to store the food than it do to give it
They say lose your inhibitions
Follow your own ambitions
They talk about a life of brotherly love (show me someone who knows how to live it)
There’s a slow, slow train comin’ up around the bend

Well, my baby went to Illinois with some bad-talkin’ boy she could destroy
A real suicide case, but there was nothin’ I could do to stop it
I don’t care about economy
I don’t care about astronomy
But it sure do bother me to see my loved ones turning into puppets
There’s a slow, slow train comin’ up around the bend

Are You Ready?
Of Love
Saved

    Precious Angel
    Written by Bob Dylan

    Precious angel, under the sun
    How was I to know you’d be the one
    To show me I was blinded, to show me I was gone
    How weak was the foundation I was standing upon?

    Now there’s spiritual warfare and flesh and blood breaking down
    Ya either got faith or ya got unbelief and there ain’t no neutral ground
    The enemy is subtle, how be it we are so deceived
    When the truth’s in our hearts and we still don’t believe?

    Shine your light, shine your light on me
    Shine your light, shine your light on me
    Shine your light, shine your light on me
    Ya know I just couldn’t make it by myself
    I’m a little too blind to see

    My so-called friends have fallen under a spell
    They look me squarely in the eye and they say, “All is well”
    Can they imagine the darkness that will fall from on high
    When men will beg God to kill them and they won’t be able to die?

    Sister, lemme tell you about a vision I saw
    You were drawing water for your husband, you were suffering under the law
    You were telling him about Buddha, you were telling him about Mohammed
    in the same breath
    You never mentioned one time the Man who came and died a criminal’s death

    Shine your light, shine your light on me
    Shine your light, shine your light on me
    Shine your light, shine your light on me
    Ya know I just couldn’t make it by myself
    I’m a little too blind to see

    Precious angel, you believe me when I say
    What God has given to us no man can take away
    We are covered in blood, girl, you know our forefathers were slaves
    Let us hope they’ve found mercy in their bone-filled graves

    You’re the queen of my flesh, girl, you’re my woman, you’re my delight
    You’re the lamp of my soul, girl, and you torch up the night
    But there’s violence in the eyes, girl, so let us not be enticed
    On the way out of Egypt, through Ethiopia, to the judgment hall of Christ

    Shine your light, shine your light on me
    Shine your light, shine your light on me
    Shine your light, shine your light on me
    Ya know I just couldn’t make it by myself
    I’m a little too blind to see
