Steve Goodman's "City of New Orleans"

One of the reasons I love to hear the original songwriter sing. This is "City of New Orleans" in the original, back behind Willie's interpretation (as much as I like it) and back behind even Arlo Guthrie's (as much as I like it). Johnny Cash did it pretty well, probably because he understood trains.As much as I like all the others, I feel like I'm getting the real thing when Goodman sings it.
