Marrakesh Express


About this design:

Somehow this vermeil and natural colored gemstone bracelet reminds me of the song by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young called Marrakesh Express. If it's been a while since you've heard it, give it a listen. Great song ... and love these gemstones with the pearls! SLS

Marrakesh Express Lyrics
Artist:Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young

Whoopa, hey mesa, hooba huffa, hey meshy goosh goosh.

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.

Wouldn't you know we're riding on the Marrakesh Express.
Wouldn't 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 m m m m mouth.
Colored cottons hang in the air,
charming cobras in the square.
Striped djellebas we can wear at home.
Well, let me hear ya now.

Wouldn't you know we're riding on the Marrakesh Express.
Wouldn't you know we're riding on the Marrakesh Express,
they're taking me to Marrakesh.
Wouldn't you know we're riding on the Marrakesh Express.
Wouldn't you know we're riding on the Marrakesh Express,
they're taking me to Marrakesh.
All on board the train,
All on board the train,
All on board!

    This looks like CSN sounds…smooth, flowing, and tight!!!!! I have seen them 4 or 5 times and it only gets better!!!David Crosby is my hero, even though I think this is a Graham Nash song. Glad to see ther are other Chickies infected with transferring the energy of music into the beauty of beads.
