for decades been trying to find out abt song I heard in a california coffee house, by an acoustic blues player about 1965 or so, I believe it was at the Creamery Coffeehouse in Berkley-(or Oakland - it's been a long time; Other than "Coffee and Confusion" in SF, it was the only place I hung around....) as best I can recall he played a typical New Yorker, but with very high tension flat-wrapped monel strings - usu for electric axe -(I think he was that guy...or else he played a bigger axe in somewhat beat/worn shape) At any rate, the song had a chorus about a train taking the singer away from his - presumably - loved one, at the end it changed to "takin' me back to you train" I can't remember much else abt the performer.. I think it referred to a commuter train, but it could have been travelling to a gig by train, etc.... Never got a recording, and also I don't recall in those days the (now ubiquitous) tapes & records for sale at the performances. I'm not even sure that cassette tapes were very available then - I think 8-tracks were about to come on strong.. oh, ya - the performer, as many there, was black.... anybody who was around there then, HELP!!

Reviving a very old thread here.

According to this discography, Len Chandler performed TAKIN' ME AWAY FROM YOU TRAIN on his album "To Be a Man" (1967).

Apparently there used to be a video on YouTube, but it has been removed.
