Trainsongs 3 - Paradise Waiting

Pacific Rails from the Route 33 cd by the The Wailin' Elroys, one of the best of the New Breed Hillbilly bands. The song link is direct to their website and will still be available there when this link dies in a few days. Check out their website for more mp3s from their two albums. Then buy the albums and get them booked into a bar near you.

Paradise John Prine
"Oh Daddy won't you take me back to Mulinburg County
Down by the Green River, where Paradise lays.
I'm sorry, my Son, but you're too late in asking
Mr Peabody's Coal Train has hauled it away"

Bridal Train The Waifs from their excellent Double live CD, A Brief History ...

The Train And The River by the Jimmy Giuffre Three was the music playing at the beginning of the Newport Jazz Festival movie, as the camera panned first across the water and then through the crowd attending the concert. And I do mean attending. It is a bygone age.
