about

Gigging 3-4 nights a week in Appalachia, I put in a lot of miles on the road. I was based in East Tennessee and would play shows in Northern North Carolina on up to Southern Virginia, generally following a 2-3 hour radius.

I love driving through the hills and valleys and all the twisty, windy mountain roads, and of course have my favorite stretches, like Hwy 70 from Greeneville to Asheville and Hwy 91 to Kingsport.

I lived right next to the tracks and although I sleep through it at night, I find the sound of the train comforting. It reminds me of the bigger picture in life.

lyrics

Lyrics:
train
sitting on the front porch, cross the valley the train’s going by : you can hear it in the morning, hear it on into the night : lying in the cool bed, the train’s crying into the wind, lying in the cool, cool bed, the train’s crying into the wind : you can hear it in the morning, hear it on into the night :: working in the tobacco fields, cross the valley the train’s going by : sitting in the cool shade, the train’s crying into the wind, sitting in the cool, cool shade, the train’s crying into the wind :: playing in the fallow field, cross the valley the train’s going by : running through the cool weeds, the train’s crying into the wind, running through the cool, cool weeds, the train’s crying into the wind : you can hear it in the morning, hear it on into the night
