Wrinkles Lyr Req: 4th verse? City of New Orleans (18) RE: Lyr Req: 4th verse? City of New Orleans 01 Feb 05

And what was filled with "rusted automobiles" then Art? ;-)

Why couldn't you use the line anyway? I remember Geogria during segregation and the graveyards _were_ segregated then and no doubt all around the South those graveyards are still there; the dead being somewhat famous for not moving around alot; so "graveyards filled with old black men" would indeed have been a feature of the landscape the train passed through in the South, a silent reminder of institutionalised bigotry.
I'd have no problems with that change meself.

Much less than the visible wince I gave when I 1st heard that line changed to "freightyards full of old GREY men"; sheesh.
