GUEST,Phil d'Conch Lyr/Chords ADD: Reuben's Train (51* d) RE: Lyr/Chords Req: Reuben's Train 02 Jun 21


The Reuben & train lyrics/legend got picked apart in the origins thread a few years back.

Turns out they weren't written until the 1960s Yank folk craze era, mostly Lomax & Doc Watson. Mind the copyrights.

It began as an instrumental fiddle tune and many of the performers were (coincidently?) friends and relations of North Carolina fiddler Reuben Ledford.
