Michael Hyatt's Classic Railroad Songs
Ridin' the Rails DVD
DESCRIPTION
JOHNNY CASH: RIDIN' THE RAILS (DVD)out of print

DESCRIPTION

"There's nothing that stirs my imagination like the sound of a steam locomotive--that lonesome whistle cutting through the night and that column of black smoke and steam throwing shadows across the land. When I was a boy the trains ran past my house and they carried with them the promise that somewhere down the track anything would be possible." --Johnny Cash

Originally aired on television in 1974, this video is a nostalgic look at the history of the American railroad as told and sung by the legendary Johnny Cash. You'll ride the rails with Johnny as he looks back at the development of railroading in America, helps recreate famous incidents in railroad history, and hear him sing classic railroad songs - in his own unique style - such as Casey Jones, The Legend of John Henry's Hammer and City of New Orleans.
