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
“Its a Shame” – Hayes Carll Cover
Hell of a recording……gotta love the Cash tease at the end.
Here’s another. At the end of Bingham’s Mescalito, The Best of Me, Bingham says: “Always gotta be a f***** train.” And there is in fact a train.
