City of New Orleans Arlo Guthrie

Matt is off to New Orleans today to repair houses with AmeriCorps workers. One of the songs he sent me last night was this recording of City of New Orleans. He wrote, “I’ve always listened to the Willie Nelson version but this one is from our Cadillac-driving Berkshire neighbor.”

I post this as the train system around here is compromised by the snow. I know we’re a nation of cars, but before we were that we were a nation of trains. Wish we cared more about our train system in this country. It would make us a better people.
