I've transcribed the song from a hand-written letter but it's clear that "railroad racks" is "rack" rather than "hacks." the "rs" are quite consistent. Of course the correspondent may have misheard the word or even mis-remembered it by 1922.

"Bush" may just be a reference to the wilds of Maine, once one strays out of the streets of old Portland.
