Lyrics

In the shuffling madness
Of the locomotive breath,

What a song!!!!!
heavy,heavy, h e a v y . . m a s t e r magicians!
I saw Tull in '72 at Madison square garden. My first concert. He was friggin awesome. And his music is just as good today.
Definitely my favorite Tull tune.

Tull is an alltime power hitter
Saw tull at long beach arena it was a bad u have to see them to feel their music it was great
Tull and Sabbath were great I'm so gratefully I grew up in that era and not with the scrap today the kids now have no idea what great music is God bless rock and roll. Rock On Rock On!!! Bring my childhood back you're the greatest!!!!
Love how it sounds like a train.
Used to play regularly in some of the discos in Asia back in the 70s. Just a great rock tune from u know whom!!
I have taken to playing this one myself. It's great fun to set a good crunchy tone and chug-chug-ch u g - c h u g along with Martin. And you can't go wrong with the song. Just great. Aqualung is still great.
Jazz flute gets me goin! Hot damn I love it in this song
By the way, fan or not. Best Concert you will witness.
TULL, you get it or YOU DON'T. really, no in between. Tull fan for 41 yrs not everyones cup of tea. Suits me just fine!

I love the jazz piano intro and really the whole wind-up to the song
At 17, Locomotive Breath was my favorite song from my favorite album by my favorite band. Still love the song. Saw Tull twice, on the Under Wraps tour, and on the Crest of a Knave tour. Both show were fabulous. The Under Wraps show was my first rock concert.

Last time I heard this from Living With The Past(live-20 0 2 ) it sounded like a very poor live version. This time it sounds like the original from Aqualung(197 1 ) but it is still shown as from Living With The Past. Thirty one years is just too much time for someone not to notice.
Because I see that message everywhere on blogs and thought it would be nice to write for once.

Every time I hear this song I always think it's the "...snots are running down his nose..." song.

Love the piano intro
This song came up on my "Ministry" page. Great song! Love the variety.
Alright, Pandora, this means war. Jethro Tull on my friggin' Pantera page?? really? You piece of crap, you don't deserve to live.
NOW ENJOY THE FLUTE SOLO!
this is like one of my top ten songs, i think aqualung is a better song but i love this one so much more. DAMN THAT CHARLIE!
I caught the 2008 Tull show at Red Rocks last summer, and Locomotive Breath was the epitome of "heavy". We appreciate and enjoy Tull for their lyric, harmonic, melodic, and rhythmic approach to music, and sometimes forget what a "heavy rock band" they really are.
