Phish performed this bit of bouncy fun only once, with Bruce “Sunpie” Barnes on washboard, harmonica, and lead vocals. The lyrics, typically silly swing, are of upbeat love for railroads, not for the freedom they suggest, but for the sound and rhythms of the trains and tracks. This smash hit of 1940s swing, by a pioneer who mixed blues and jazz, and thus helped found R&B, was a perfect choice for the guest spot and allowed some nice interaction between Barnes and Page.
