Testo della canzone Milwaukee (Al Jarreau), tratta dall'album Glow

Milwaukee - Al Jarreau

Well well well well well
Keep on talkin' 'bout a sweet train
Born in my mama's dream to be happy
Born in my mama's dream to be happy
Sweet train, keep on rollin'
Sweet train, Milwaukee road

See the moon movin' along the sky, yes
Here's a car movin' along the highway
You movin' to California with me,
I'm almost

Two thousand miles from my home sweet home
Two thousand miles from the arms
That bore me
Two thousand miles from my sweet home
Milwaukee

Yeah yeah, talkin' 'bout Milwaukee

Oh this train screamin' touched the sky
There's a rain cloudin' the road before me
Strange moanin' and now
What did we thought that I would be
Find myself

Two thousand miles from my home sweet home
Two thousand miles from the arms
That bore me
Two thousand miles from my sweet home
Milwaukee

But I keep singin' roll on, Milwaukee road
Roll in the rain and cold
Don't you know this train
Born in my mama's dream to be happy
It moves me
Singin' roll on, Milwaukee road
Got to warm up the tracks and cold
Sweet train born in my mama's dream
To be happy.

Well let me tell you somethin'
Now you don't know
How they bring me down
Sometimes they try to bring me down
Let me inform you
Sometimes scrappin' and scratchin' my back
Good man, well well
And I got the greatest urge
To leave this town
A dirty town of broken dreams
And broken hearts and broken lives

And twisted ghostly songs and souls
And wailin' sunsets
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
And they say now don't you leave this town
Got to stick around now, kid
Just to see it crumble to the ground
Don't you leave this town
You got to stick around now, kid
Just to see it crumble to the ground
Tell me, say brother,
Don't leave this town
Got to stick around
Watch it crumble now to the ground
Said don't you leave this town
Now stick around
Watch it crumble to the ground
I wake up early, yes
I wake up early, Lord
I wake up early in the mornin'
Sweatin' and cryin' and wailin'
I wake up,
See the moon movin' along the sky
Lord, I been tryin', tryin'
To pull some good luck my way
And all I need is someone to love me
Find myself

Two thousand miles from my home sweet home
Two thousand miles from the arms
That bore me
Two thousand miles from my sweet home
Milwaukee

But I keep singin' roll on, Milwaukee road
Gonna roll in the rain and cold
Do you know this train
Was born in my mama's dream to be happy
You're so fine, singin' roll on,
Milwaukee road
Warm up the tracks and cold
Sweet train born in my mama's dream

To be happy
Yeah yeah, got to get it together
Gonna be happy, boy
Get yourself together
