Rolling Stones unreleased: Still A Fool

Also known as: ‘Two Train Blues’, ‘Two Trains Running’
Written by: McKinley Morganfield (Muddy Waters)
Recorded: Rolling Stones Mobile, Redlands, England, June 26-30 1968
Guest musicians: Nicky Hopkins (piano)

Still A Fool is a return to the Little Red Rooster style blues. The song was a 1951 Muddy Waters tune. Another British group, The Groundhogs (named after a John Lee Hooker song) with Tony McPhee as their guitarist recorded Still A Fool in 1968 for their debut album Scratching the Surface. It’s not known if this inspired the Stones to record the track. Slide guitar, wailing harmonica, piano, and Jagger moaning in true southern Delta fashion creates a track lasting over nine minutes, which should be sought by blues critics and Stones’ official collectors alike. It returns to the past, but also is predictive of the future. It must have given them confidence to tackle tracks like the impending Midnight Rambler. Still A Fool, also known as Two Trains Running is essential collecting material.

Now there’s two, there’s two trains running
And it never runs my way
Now then one is running at midnight
The other one is running in just four days
Running in just four days,
Running in just four days

Somebody help me with my blues
Now that she’s the one, I’ve been loving
I do hate to lose, I do hate to lose
I do hate to lose

I’ve been crazy, Yes, I’ve been a fool
I’ve been crazy all my life
Well I fell in love with another man’s wife
With another man’s wife
With another man’s wife
With another man’s wife

Oh, she’s long, she’s so long and tall
And she weep like a willow tree
And it’s said that she’s no good
It’s all right
She’s alright
She’s all right with me
She’s all right with me
She’s alright, she’s alright
She’s alright, she’s alright
She’s alright, she’s alright
She’s alright with me
She’s alright with me
