Annotationen

Graham Nash machte 1966 Ferien in Marokko und reiste mit einem Zug von Casablanca nach Marrakesh. Da ihn die Szenerie in der ersten Klasse langweilte, wechselte er den Wagon. Was er dort erlebte, packte er in diesen Song. Die Hollies haben den Song abgelehnt und so brachte Nash in bei CS&N ein.

Lyrics

Looking at the world through the sunset in your eyes Traveling the train through clear Moroccan skies Ducks and pigs and chickens call, animal carpet wall to wall American ladies five-foot tall in blue Sweeping cobwebs from the edges of my mind Had to get away to see what we could find Hope the days that lie ahead bring us back to where they've led Listen not to what's been said to you Would you know we're riding on the Marrakesh Express? Would you know we're riding on the Marrakesh Express? They're taking me to Marrakesh All aboard the train, all aboard the train I've been saving all my money just to take you there I smell the garden in your hair Take the train from Casablanca going South Blowing smoke rings from the corners of my mouth Colored cottons hang in the air Charming cobras in the square Striped djellabas we can wear at home Well, let me hear ya now Would you know we're riding on the Marrakesh Express? Would you know we're riding on the Marrakesh Express? They're taking me to Marrakesh Would you know we're riding on the Marrakesh Express? Would you know we're riding on the Marrakesh Express? They're taking me to Marrakesh All aboard the train, all aboard the train, all aboard
