Railroad songs by Johnny Cash include:
- Folsom Prison Blues
I hear the train a comin’;
It’s rolling round the bend
and I ain’t seen the sunshine since I don’t know when.
- Orange Blossom Special – Johnny Cash’s version features harmonica instead of the usual fiddle
- Life’s Railway to Heaven (with Nitty Gritty Dirt Band):
Life is like a mountain railway,
with an engineer that’s brave.
We must make the run successful,
from the cradle to the grave.
Watch for curves, and hills and valleys;
Never falter never fail.
And keep your hands upon the throttle,
and your eye upon the rail.
- Wreck of the Old 97
- Let the Train Blow the Whistle:
Let her blow, let her blow.
Long and loud and hard and happy,
Let her blow.
- Down There By the Train
