Ghost Train

To Mr Robert Zimmerman, wherever in the world the great song and dance men hang out.
Dear Bob, I have a confession. Ghost Train started life as a re-working of your song, It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry, but when I mentioned to your publisher that I’d changed a word or three and added a verse of my own, I was told if I put it out like that I’d be hearing from your lawyers. So I had to write my own song. It has the same basic structure as It Takes A Train, but I’m hoping the altered melody and chord shifts make it lawyer proof. Though if you’re strapped for cash you’re welcome to a share of any royalties that come rolling in.
With thanks for a lifetime of inspiration and intimidation. Yours, J Mister
