images-2The Orange Blossum Special is a showcase for hi-speed guitar flat-pickin’, banjo plunkin’, and fancy fiddlin’. It’s not a song known for its lyrics. But the lyrics are my favorite part. I’m not sure why I like the words so much, but like ’em I do. I just wish someone else would sing ’em for me. All the same, it’s a fun song to try to play. However, it may not be so much fun to listen to. Tough. Nobody is forcing any one to press that arrow below. In fact, if I were you, I would just keep on scrolling. But then again if you want to hear about the fastest train on the line….. If you want to lose these New York blues…. If you wanna get some sand in your shoes….

Look a-yonder comin’
Comin’ down that railroad track
Hey, look a-yonder comin’
Comin’ down that railroad track
It’s the Orange Blossom Special
Bringin’ my baby back

Well, I’m going down to Florida
And get some sand in my shoes
Or maybe Californy
And get some sand in my shoes
I’ll ride that Orange Blossom Special
And lose these New York blues

Hey talk about a-ramblin’
She’s the fastest train on the line
Talk about a-travellin’
She’s the fastest train on the line
It’s that Orange Blossom Special
Rollin’ down the seaboard line
