By Jim Walrath? Perhaps a relation to my childhood buddy Gary ... Don't know if Jim did the video slideshow or the song or both ... Anyone who knows the history of this song, or of who we are looking at in the slides, please comment publicly, or, if you're too shy, contact me privately, I am very interested. I love all the railroad imagery in the lyrics, love the bluesy yet upbeat feel of the tune. Yep, that's Old Oelwein!
