Wow, what a useless thread. I bet no one listens to any railroad songs.

 

although i'm with you on this, got your back brutha, i am going to drop a song. kinda an obvious one, but it makes me smile nonetheless.

i know a few railroad songs,

 

 

ramblin man - hank williams III (this is actually my favorite song of the moment)

 

hobo's meditation - jimmie rodgers

 

lonesome train whistle - the reverend horton heat

 

 

and anything else by the three listed above also kicks ass,

the best ever..

 

avail

 

"West Wye"

 

sidetracked conveniently five steps from the mainline

fresh off a grain porch drinking swill

down from picking up in maine

counting change

"oh how i, i would do anything for that old junktrain to turn manifest

and highball, yeah i'd sing that railroad song by the time the sun is setting

in the west"

no time or purpose as embers smolder

holed up in pines of green

pablo writes "dos" where mouths don't share what their eyes have seen

"see those days are gone and i can't stand one more

i've fought this war counting miles alone

i've seen it all, every goddamn state

out here son it's as rough as i have known"

all i have known with sky above as home

and ground beneath as bed is to ride fast

live slow and without regret

"i've got no time for regret

those thoughts solve nothing in the end

i've got blistered hands

and lived full through rejection

long endured

'cause i came up poor

"hell no i, i wouldn't change a thing, those old junktrains all turn manifest

and highball, yeah i'll sing that railroad song by the time

the sun is setting in the west"

 

[words derived from conversations with "old bill", a railroad bum, at the acca train yard on a cold, drunk december afternoon]

The Eels - Railroad Man

 

I feel like an old railroad man

Ridin' out on the Bluemont Line

Hummin' along Old Dominion Blues

Not much to see, and not much left to lose

And I know I can walk along the tracks

It may take a little longer

But I know how to find my way back

I feel like an old railroad man

Who's really tried the best that he can

To make his life add up to something good

But this engine no long burns on wood

And I guess I may never understand

The times that I live in

Are not made for a railroad man

I feel like an old railroad man

Gettin' on board at the end of an age

The station's empty and the whistle blows

Things are faster now

This train is just too slow

And I know I can walk along the tracks

It may take a little longer

But I know how to find my way back

Well the king of railroad songs is always going to be

the singin' brakeman- Jimmie Rodgers.

 

Utah Phillips sings some good songs-and he's funny.

Personally I like this guy Click here
