Marrakesh Express Lyrics

Crosby Stills Nash Young - Marrakesh Express Lyrics



Looking at the world

Through the sunset in your eyes

Trying to make 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

All on board that 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 my,my,my,my mouth

Colored cottons hang in air

Charming cobras in the square

Striped Djellebas we can wear at home

Don't you know we're riding on the Marrakesh Express (X2)

They're taking me to Marrakesh Express

Don't you know we're riding on the Marrakesh Express (X2)

They're taking me to Marrakesh

All on board that train (X3)





MY COMMENTS



Ducks and pigs



hmm... Pigs are not real popular in Islamic counties.



hmm... Djellebas is some type of clothing worn by the Moroccan people, but maybe all of the Arab countries. There is a new type of clothing here I have never seen before that has a hood, and is pointed on the top occasionally. I will take some photos. There are some prostitutes down the street surrounded by young men, I can take photos of two subjects at one time. These girls are fully covered for modesty I assume, maybe a contradiction.
