Thread Name: Train Songs
Subject: RE: Train Songs
Hally used to sing a song that started:
    "Trouble in mind -- I'm blue
    But I won't be blue always"...
that had a "Train" verse in it:
    "I'm gonna lay my head
      On some lonesome railroad line
      And let the (train time here) come on and
      Satisfy my mind."
Makes me shiver.

Went through this thread, didn't see (might have missed) mention of Roy Acuff's "Take That Night Train to Memphis". Mother liked Roy Acuff.

    ..."Amd we'll have a JUBILEE
       Down in Memphis, Tennessee,
       And we'll shout HALLELUJAH all the way!"
Amen.   Tw
