Sorry to be late, hope you see this:

Mystery Train

Train I ride, sixteen coaches long
Train I ride, sixteen coaches long
Well that long black train is bringing my baby home

Train, train, coming round, round the bend
Train, train, coming round, round the bend
Well you took my baby, and brought her back again

Train, train, coming down and down the line
Train, train, coming down and down the line
Well it's bringing my baby, lord she's mine all mine

Alternate: Mystery Train, coming down and down the line
Mystery Train, coming down and down the line
Well it's bringing my baby, lord she's mine all mine

Cheers, Fortunato

I remember the early Elvis version very well, and each third line had a negative connotation:

1) Well, that long black train took my baby and gone.

2) Well, you took my baby, but you never will again.

3) Well, you took my baby, but she's mine all mine.

The song called "Mystery Train" was written by Little Junior Parker and Sam Phillips.

The book called "Mystery Train" took its title from the song and was written by Greil Marcus.

According to Hank Davis and Colin Escott in their notes to the Sun Blues Years box set, when it first appeared, 'Mystery Train was credited solely to Junior Parker and published by Memphis Music. By the time Elvis Presley recorded his version in 1955, Sam Phillips had added his name to the copyright and the publishing had been tranferred to Phillips' Hi Lo Music. They suggest this was possibly in part settlement of Junior Parker's contract dispute.

I want to obtain some of Junior Parkers music so my band can learn it and play it. Is anybody else out there doing tributes to Junior Parker? I just read about the "sun blues years" box set? Love to have that. Where can I get it? If you reply to this, does it come to my email, or do I need to enter the site and log on to chat or something to read it? Brand new to site-haven't read much yet. Help?

Hi Tomas,

The Sun blues box set was issued by Charly Records, a UK label. I understood that Charly went bust quite some time ago after losing a legal battle with MCA over the use of the Chess catalogue. However, CDNow seem to have some Charly CDs, but not the Sun blues set - I don't know whether it ever made it to CD.

CDNow's Charly holdings

CD now have lots of Junior Parker CDs. Go to their site and put 'Junior Parker' in the artist search box.

--Stewie.
