On My Way to Harlem Lyrics

by Gregory Porter

I found out on my way to Harlem
Ellington you don't live 'round here
He moved away one day so they say
From Harlem
I can hear his echos still
Now now now you can't keep me away from where I was born
I was baptized by my daddy's horn
now now now you can't keep my away from where I was born
I was baptized by the jazz man's horn
I found out on my way to Harlem
Langston Hughes he don't live 'round here
He moved away one day from his way here in Harlem
I know that Marvin Gaye use to play right in here
Some body say you can't keep me away from where I was born
I was baptized by my daddy's horn
No you cant keep me away from where I was born
I was baptized to the sound of horns.
I found out on my way to Harlem
Ellington you don't live 'round here
He moved away one day so they say
Away from Harlem
I can hear his echos clear
OH now you can't keep me away from where i was born
I was baptized by my daddy's horn
Now now now now you can't keep me away from where I was born
I was baptized by the sound of horns
Oh I found out on my way to Harlem
Marvin Gaye used to play whats going on right over there
I so could use some of those blues from Langston Hughes
Hey there goes the A train
Hey there goes the A train
Through Harlem
Hey there goes the A train
Hey there goes the A train
Hey there goes the A train
