Fantastic Videos of Railroading Songs - Wreck of the Old 97

They gave him his orders at Monroe Virginia,
Said Steve you are way behind time,
This is not thirty eight,
This is old ninety seven,
You must put her into Spencer on time,
He turned around and said to his kind greasy fireman,
Shovel on a little more coal,
And when we cross that White Oak Mountain,
Watch old ninety seven roll.


Wreck of the Old 97 performed by Johnny Cash



Once again, a great railroading song as only the incomparable Johnny Cash can do it. This video features the track from Johnny shown with vintage movie and railroad footage. Both audio and video are extremely well done.


The Wreck of old 97 performed by Boxcar Willie



Here is another great rendition, this time by Boxcar Willie. Features Willie's audio track with a lot of great still photos of old trains and train wrecks. This audio track volume is a little low, but clear.


The Wreck Of The Old 97 performed by Hank Snow



Here is a real nice rendition by Hank Snow. Has some great train sound effects and harmonica. Shows a few Hank Snow album covers.


Wreck of Old 97 by Lester and Earl



Here is this great song, as apparently done on the Beverly Hillbillies TV Show. Features a few different vocals, and some fantastic banjo playing.


Wreck of Old 97 by Roy Acuff



Yet another great rendition, this time by Roy Acuff. Has some great harmonica. This one features a photos and video of locomotives with the lyrics shown on the screen. Karaoke railroad songs anyone?
