Thread Name: Train songs
Subject: RE: Train songs
Another one I get a lot of requests for in senior citizens' homes (especially from the folks who are under 90) is "Five Hundred Miles." They also like Elizabeth Cotten's "Freight Train," as well as "Chattanooga Choo Choo" and "Wabash Cannonball."

One I get requests for but don't do (cause it really needs a fiddle or something) is "Orange Blossom Special."

"Waiting For A Train" (sung by Jimmie Rodgers) is also requested from time to time, as is "Rock Island Line."
