Ridin’ the Rails

Indulge us the pleasure of a little classic Johnny Cash. Hear this song once, and you’ll be humming it for days…

Ridin’ the Rails

The old high rollin’ days of steam have faded,
and a little of the rich glamor has worn off now.
But some of us still wake up and find ourselves listenin’
for that long lonesome whistle in the night.
That’s the sound America’s dreams are made of.
Close your eyes, and make believe just a little bit,
and I bet you can hear that whistle blow.

You can watch the complete version of this film, including historical reenactments from the history of the American railroad, at this location.
