shaka's current selection is:
Duquesne Whistle
by Bob Dylan
#TrainTracks

Shaka dove headfirst into the empty tub this morning. I'm not sure how the emergency people got in since I have to keep all doors locked now. I guess I have to call hospice nurse to tell them so they can look at the cuts on top of my head even though I think they are superficial. This is not quite like @Ulittletwit 's #TubJams LOL!

Dylan penned this song's mysterious and playful lyrics with his old friend, the Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter. The pair collaborated on most of the tracks on Dylan's previous album, Together Through Life.

The bluesy song refers to the Duquesne (pronounced doo-kayne) train service that used to run between New York Penn and Pittsburgh Penn Stations, which was named after the 18th century Fort Duquesne in the latter city. That route is now served by the daily Amtrack Pennsylvanian service. The lyrics show Dylan's distaste at times a changing'. "Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowing," he demands. "Blowing like it's gonna sweep my world away."

The Nash Edgerton-directed music video is set on the streets of downtown Los Angeles. Dylan appears briefly throughout the clip.

The line, "I'm gonna stop at Carbondale and keep on going" refers to Carbondale, Pennsylvania, in the northeast corner of the state. Like all of the region, it's now a small rust belt town, but at the time when the Duquesne train line was running, Carbondale was fat off the anthracite coal industry.~ Songfacts.com

Shaka's next dive will be six feet deep. LOL!
