Freight Train Blues

I know some of you thought I forgot all about the train song of the day today. Not so. Here’s Roy Acuff from 1947 performing Freight Train Blues. I love this recording. Listen to the fantastic harmonica toward the end of the cut!

Later on, a young Bob Dylan covered this tune on his first record. Dylan did a pretty good job of it, but you can’t beat the Acuff version.

Have your say...
