New River Train

After perusing dozens of youtube videos of various individuals performing "New River Train" I pronounce this guy the winner:

Andy Griffith gets an honorable mention:

Tony, Doc, Norman, et al... better luck next time.

Why am I watching hours worth of videos of this song? I'm glad you asked. I spent the week in Eggleston, VA recording an album at JoeBass's house, which is right next to the New River and its associated train. We occasionally had to wait for it to pass by before starting a take. I didn't record this song, but I did record two others that mention the New River Train (aka, the C&O Railway.)
