  1. Great rendition of this classic ballad! Written by Arlo Guthrie while he was actually riding on "The City of New Orleans" train. It is a pensive and beautiful tribute to passenger rail. Arlo was actually witnessing the passing scenes as he transformed them into lyrics. As the son of a railroad conductor in Illinois, we took the train out of Chicago many times as a child. I remember "pulling out of Kankakee", and "passing graveyards of the rusted automobile. I still feel "the rhythm of the rails" every time I hear a distant train. This song goes deep into my soul. Thanks for keeping it alive!
