Train songs

Originally published August 24, 2003

I always figured that you couldn't be a musician unless you knew AT LEAST five train songs. I learned these right away, and I still believe that they are EXCELLENT train songs.

#1: Folsom Prison Blues

#2: The Wreck of Old 97

#3: City Of New Orleans

#4: Orange Blossom Special

#5: Canadian Railroad Trilogy

If you know any better train songs, let me know.

("Rainy Night In Georgia" would qualify, but it's not reallly a train song.)
