Thread Name: Train Songs
Subject: RE: Train Songs
Eileen McGann has a good song about the importance of the railway in Canada - "Rolling Home Canadian" on her Journeys album (1995). The chorus goes:

Rollin', rollin',
Rollin' home,
As long as I can hear the train
I know I'm not alone.
Stitching up this country
Between my family and me,
The railway ties are ties that bind,
From sea to sea to sea.

(The Journeys album also has a song called "Another Train" - which is not about a train.)
