The City of New Orleans Song

Here's what can happen when you click on the suggested YouTube links. I really enjoyed this fascinating explanation behind one of my favorite songs. Sorry, the narration is kind of awful, but wait till he gets into it. And, the narrator is actually from Kankakee. . . . 

Here is the video Lee sent me yesterday that led to the above:

Here's Steve Goodman's version, 1972:

I just watched a great movie, called "A Murder of Crows." Takes place in New Orleans. Love it! A great detective story and a great city to see it unfold in. Beautiful, distinctive accents too. Love anything to do with the French Quarter in New Orleans. Can't wait to go back to France, too, come to think of it.
