Well, I ride on a mailtrain, baby

Can’t buy a thrill. . . .

  1. One of my favourites - I'm a sucker for songs that have anything to do with trains! (I'd be too chicken-hearted to post it though.)

    1. This has always been my favorite song on what was originally side one of the LP. Many years later I discovered it sort of has its foundations in Leroy Carr's "Alabama Women Blues."
