Duquesne Whistle Lyrics - Bob Dylan

Review The Song (1)



Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowing
Blowing like it's gonna sweep my world away
I wanna stop at Carmangale and keep on going
That Duquesne train gon' rock me night and day

You say I'm a gambler, you say I'm a pimp
But I ain't neither one

Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowing
Sounding like it's on a final run

Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowing
Blowing like she never blowed before
Little light blinking, red light glowing
Blowing like she's at my chamber door

You smiling through the fence at me
Just like you always smiled before

Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowing
Blowing like she ain't gon' blow no more

Can't you hear that Duquesne whistle blowing?
Blowing like the sky's gonna blow apart
You're the only thing alive that keeps me going
You're like a time bomb in my heart

I can hear a sweet voice steadily calling
Must be the mother of our lore

Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowing
Blowing like my woman's on board

Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowing
Blowing like it's gon' blow my blues away
You old rascal, I know exactly where you're going
I'll lead you there myself at the break of day

I wake up every morning with that woman in my bed
Everybody telling me she's gone to my head

Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowing
Blowing like it's gon' kill me dead

Can't you hear that Duquesne whistle blowing?
Blowing through another no good town

The lights on my lady's land are glowing
I wonder if they'll know me next time 'round
I wonder if that old oak tree's still standing
That old oak tree, the one we used to climb

Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowing
Blowing like she's blowing right on time

Duquesne Whistle | Reviewer: Glory Cloud Revelation | 4/13/13

The impression that Glory Cloud Revelation has of this is based somewhat on knowing that the song writer, Bob Dylan, who represents himself in Duquesne Whistle, is a kind, compassionate person with a reputation of being for the underdog. So why the cruelty portrayed toward the young man who is rejected by the girl, beat up, and thrown on the street unconsciously dreaming about her. And while the song is going at a happy beat, he steps to the side instead of trying to help. The reason being is he is that that young man's soulish tie to this young woman is most likely representing what this song writer
felt had happened to himself in a relationship that caused him to suffer cruelly that he wanted to end.
He has a happy sound to his voice and happy sounding music when he sings, "Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowing, Blowing like it's gonna sweep my world, away...sounding like it's on the final run". Why does it sound so happy? Most likely because he's hoping that the world he calls his, with all it's misery will be swept away on a final run. (In the video it shows a young man suffering because of a relationship he desires with a woman who doesn't want him...in fact it even looks like he may be dying)
"Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowing...like she ain't gonna blow no more...blowing like the sky's gonna blow apart...You're the only thing that keeps me alive that keeps me going, you're like a time bomb in my heart". Could this mean the hope that he can escape from this struggling hurt inside of himself by getting on that Duquesne train is what's keeping him alive. What is he imagining to happen that will change things for him on that Duquesne train?..."to hear a soft voice calling, similiar to the mother of our Lord". Maybe he is. hoping his lost love who really loved him would be there..."Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowing, Blowing like my woman's on board".
