Rollo Dilworth : Nine Hundred Miles

Of the many genres of the American folk song traditions, the work song and the railroad song are two of the most common. These were often sung during times of travel as a means of passing time but also as a means of lifting spirits. This example offers hope along with a solid example of the style so important in American folk song history.
