I received an email from my pal East Texas Red. Now he was concerned about me, concerned that I was going to run out of train songs, and he wanted to be sure I was going to land on my feet. East Texas Red kindly sent me a site full of mining song videos. I appreciate him looking out for me, but I just want to say I’m not quite done with the train songs just yet.
Today I’d like to feature a Guy Clark song, Desperadoes Waiting for a Train. Here’s Nancy Griffith with some friends…including Mr. Clark. I tried to embed this video as I normally do, but it wouldn’t embed. Maybe it’s some kind of conspiracy designed to thwart my effort to do so. I really don’t know. Maybe it’s my computer. Instead, watch it here.
I was going to post a few different versions of the song, but this one pretty much nails it. He sure writes some sweet songs, that Guy Clark.
