You will like it Eazor - I Guar-Un-tee - in truth, i was thinking of you when I posted it - the version off the "We Walk the Line" album will knock your socks off - it's greatness and great fun!
You know, the story behind that song is real - google "train wreck of 97" and read about it if you don't know - the first time I heard that song, I thought it was just being funny, like parodying all the classic Train Songs, with the "scalded to death by the steam" and last verse about about "never speak harsh words to your true lovin' sweetheart" - but it is one of the originals!
There is a famous picture of the train wreck of '97 in Dansville, Young Miss and I have agreed to make a pilgrimage to Dansville just to pay homage to the line and all the great train songs that came out of it -
"Virgil Kane is my name and served on the Dansville train
'Til Stoneman's Calvery came, and tore up the tracks again"....
