Music Monday – What is it with so many songs about trains?

For some reason so many songs I like are about trains, or talk about trains. Of all the songs I play, about 7 of them have the “T” word, who knows why trains inspire these songwriters, but I guess it works.  Here’s a Todd Snider tune that I love called “Play a Train Song.”

I had screwed up and put a Hayes Carll song on there, oh well, here is the TS tune.

“Play a Train Song” – Todd Snider cover
