Brad Sondahl blues lyrics meanings (34) RE: blues lyrics 04 Apr 98


Concerning easy rider-- sometimes it's See See Rider, or C.C. Rider, short for Country Circuit Rider, a preacher that travelled to various rural parishes (and perhaps succumbing to some dalliance in popular parlance). As to riding the rails, I tried it a few times--learned a few terms, such as a hogger is an engineer. Never did figure out what the blinds were. Best ride in the summer was on a piggyback (truck trailer toter), where you were exposed to the wind, but the ride was very smooth. Empty boxcars bounce rhythmically and severely. Needed to pile cardboard to cushion the ride.
