SINGING STEEL RAILS
Well I stood at the side of the railroad line
just waitin' for an eastbound train
I heard a mighty roar and I knew for sure
I was on my way again
(cho.)
I don't know just where I'm bound, I only know where I've been
I can't seem to settle down, The road's my only friend

Well I climbed aboard an old boxcar, and I watched the world pass by
And I thought about my one true love, the one I left behind.
(cho.)
Well I think I'll ride this old freight train, just to see where it will go
And I hope the singin' silver rails will ease my troubles so....
(cho.)

-one of mine.

A couple of others that I love to play:
Boomer's Story -Ry Cooder
Hobo's Lullabye -various
Anniversary Blue Yodel (among many) -Jimmie Rogers

-smokeyjoe; railfan, muscician, etc.
