Jimi Hendrix - Hear My Train A Comin'




"Hear My Train A Comin'" (alternatively titled "Get My Heart Back Together") is a blues-based song written by Jimi Hendrix. Lyrically, it was inspired by earlier American spirituals and blues songs which use a train metaphor to represent salvation. Hendrix recorded the song in live, studio, and impromptu settings several times between 1967 and 1970, but never completed it to his satisfaction.


Hendrix often played "Hear My Train A Comin'" in concert using a blues rock arrangement with accompaniment. He developed it into an extended improvisational guitar piece comparable to "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)".




Lyrics


Hear my train a comin'

Hey

Wait around the train station

Waitin' for that train

Take me

Take me away

From this lonesome time

A whole lot of people put me through a lot of changes

And my girl done put me down


Tears burnin' me

Burnin' me

Way down in my soul

Way down in my heart

It's too bad you don't love no more, child

Too bad you and me have to part, have to part baby

Have to part


Hear my train is coming

Hear my train is coming

Hear my train is coming

Hear my train is coming


Gonna make it bigger

With all that's still in my heart

Gonna be a magic boy ooh child

Gonna come back and buy this town

An' put it all in my shoe

In my shoe baby

You make love to me one more time girl

So I give a piece to you baby

Hey hey hey


Hear my train is coming

Hear my train is coming

Here come the rest of my soul

Movin' through the washer baby

Hear my train a comin' yeah yeah
