Thanks all,

I sing this song but always wanted to know more about it. I have a few old Delia Murphy recordings. I will pay them a visit.

I was always confused by the verse that started " I put my foot on an east bound train" or " They placed me on an east bound train"
If you go east from Boston you are in the Atlantic ?.
