Thread Name: Train Songs
Subject: RE: BS: Train Songs
Harold, I think you need to check a little deeper in at the DT too. Did you know you can browse by keywords? Entering @ train in the searchbox got over 80 hits.... not all of them gems of course or only slightly rail related, but there are at least 30+ good railroad songs about wrecks and hobos and related stuff. Kendall Morse does a great rendition of "PHOEBE SNOW" by Utah Phillips and it's in there...a kind of hobo song. If I had the time to learn it, I'd sing it next week.

There are also a couple of Woody's like "EAST TEXAS RED"..a great "don't get mad get even" song, and "HOBO'S LULLABY" which aren't in the DT.
