Mystery Train

Elvis Presley Lyrics Words & Music by Junior Parker / Sam Phillips Elvis Presley Lyrics

Train I ride, sixteen coaches long
Train I ride, sixteen coaches long
Well that long black train got my baby and gone

Train train, comin' 'round, 'round the bend
Train train, comin' 'round the bend
Well it took my baby, but it never will again (no, not again)

Train train, comin' down, down the line
Train train, comin' down the line
Well it's bringin' my baby, 'cause she's mine all, all mine
(She's mine, all, all mine)

Recorded: 1955/07/11, first released on single

Elvis successfully records three new songs at Sun.

They are: 'I Forgot to Remember to Forget', an original composition written for him once again by Stan Kesler; Little Junior Parker's 'Mystery Train', which Sam Phillips originally produced on Parker in 1953; and a number by the Washington, D.C., r & b group the Eagles', Trying to Get to You'. Memphis drummer Johnny Bernero plays on all but 'Mystery Train', and the first two songs will become the next single.

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever. + Plus Bonus DVD Audio.

This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.

The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
