Thread Name: Lyr Req: Hell Bound Train (Frank Hutchison)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Hellbound Train - Frank Hutchison
I had forgotten the Hutchison LP on Rounder. It has transcriptions by Mark Wilson on the inside of the fold-out cover. What Joe posted above is identical to Wilson's transcription. I agree that the mystery word could well be a slurred 'glory'.
'The Hellbound Train' is a classic piece usually associated with cowboy singers and further references can be found in Glen Ohrlin's book of that title. Hutchison's version is unusual in employing the 'Casey Jones' tune'.
