“Slow Train/License to Kill” | GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY


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? And there’s a slow (slow), slow train comin’ (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, you’ve got
to quit your mess and straighten out. You could die down here, be just another accident
statistic.” Cause there’s a slow (slow), slow train comin’
(train comin’) up around the bend. (A slow train comin’) 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. Cause there’s a slow (slow), slow train comin’
(train comin’) up around the bend. (A slow train comin’) There’s a slow (slow),
slow train comin’ (train comin’) up around the bend. (A slow train comin’) There’s a woman on my block, She just sits
there as the night grows still. She said who gonna take away his license to
kill? Now, they take him and they teach him and
they groom him for life, And they set him on a path where he’s bound to get ill. Then they bury him with the stars, Sell his
body like they do used cars. There’s a woman (slow) on my block (train), She just sits
there (slow) facin’ the hill (train). She said who gonna take away his license to
kill? May be a noisemaker, spirit maker, heartbreaker,
backbreaker, Leave no stone unturned. May be an actor in a plot that might be all
that you got, Til your error you clearly learned. Well there’s a slow (slow), slow train coming
(train coming) up around the bend. (A slow train coming) There’s a slow (slow),
slow train coming (train coming) up around the bend (A slow train coming) There’s a slow, there’s
a slow (slow), there’s a slow, there’s a slow train coming (train coming) up around the
bend. (A slow train coming) Yeah, there’s a slow (slow),
slow train coming (train coming) up around the bend. (A slow train coming)

    I saw the London production of Girl From The North Country and I hoped and prayed that it would go to America because I believe that it's a piece of art that's needed to soothe the soul, I knew in the right hands that it would soar and I was right. I wish I could be in New York to see it.

    I was at the first preview recently and was so moved ny this piece. The cast is top notch, the music is soulful and the story is an American one. I loved it and I cant wait to go back. I hope, should this transfer, that we get an Original Broadway Cast Recording, to compliment the London recording.

    Amazing show that is not only a musical but a very dramatic play at the same time Dylan should be proud Conor McPherson's play

    Saw the West End production. Loved it. Was worried how a new cast would be in America. Looks like there was no need to be. Must-see musical theatre.

    Saw this tonight. Still in a daze. And this was one of the most exciting musical numbers I've ever seen in a show. It was all I could do to stay seated. What a joy it must be to sing these arrangements every night.

    Loved Dylan for over 50 years but to hear his music woven into the play at the old vic production was a revelation. I was so moved by the whole experience. An incredible marriage.

    Very sorry, but not a patch on the London version. It never ever will be without the London cast and more 8mporta toy Shirley Henderson. Suck it up US.

    i see the lines on your faces and a design is drawn out and an emotion is colored in a gracious creative sound ancient winds of time entwined with pain and want searching existing thought hidden in these mask a unitified picture and the present past future intense love will last

    I saw it in London, the songs of Bob Dylan where just brilliant versions, fantastic ! But the dialogs studded with disgusting f-words definitely didn`t do justice to those wonderful songs of Bob !

    The London cast was stellar. Especially the second cast. No one can top Katie Brayben. This isn't as good as what I heard last month in London.

    I just saw a preview of this show on Broadway. Let me just say that it's one of the most incredible productions I've seen so far. Great cast. If you're in New York, get tickets now. It's great.

    Just saw it on Broadway. I don't think I've ever felt so strongly that I wanted a curtain call to last forever. Just a remarkable, moving, and purely entertaining show.
