    I’d like to nominate “Daddy, What’s a Train?” by Utah Phillips, and “A Train Not Running,” by Chris Knight, for inclusion in this week’s topic. Or maybe, depending on which way the topic is progressing, “Hellbound Train,” by Savoy Brown.

    Not sure of the rules, but I would submit:

    “Train Train” by Blackfoot

    “Drums took a train” at the spectrum the dead circa 1991, I thought we were on the tracks and about to be killed!

    “I know you rider” performed by your choice of artist, I wish I was a headlight on a north bound train.

  4. The rules are: There are no rules.

    Little Black Train, Woody Guthrie
    Folsom Prison Blues
    Can’t You See (Marshall Tucker Band)

    Not all trains carry passengers. Sometimes they carry off whole counties…

    I suggest John Prine’s Paradise (or one of the worthy covers).

    In the case of non-passenger carrying trains, “Freight Train,” by Elizabeth Cotten.
