Southern Rock, in the CCR vain, Male vocal, Upbeat @ 168 BPM, written by Rodney Nichols     Great guitar work, good harmonies   Mood/  happy feel, contentment, confidence.                                               ABOUT;     This is the story of a  natural born Louisiana picker, that is, he was born to play. He came from Louisiana with blues playing on his mind, played a fender guitar and a blues harp all the time.   He's described on stage as  romping and stomping in the spot light glow. The chorus tells us  he  was born in the pouring rain, and was dubbed, by his mother, a "Louisiana Freight Train"  . In the third verse, our player tells us what life is all about and how he feels about fulfilling his destiny.

The Back Porch Boogie Band, shown below, has played clubs, honkey tonks, festivals, and living rooms for decades, off and on anyway. The band got back together to write an album in 2009, after a 25 year break.  La. Freight Train was the first song we laid down on that album," Blue Moon Shine.". It was so great to be back together , so naturally, we  had to play some gigs, and did so for about a  year and half. While the band doesn't gig together, health reasons, most  are  still gigging.  We went on to lay down a 2nd album, "Above Ground". We are back in the studio and we are once again  recording new material.  The band is, Lightning Rod Nichols, Roland Hall, Ricky McLaurin, Dennis Broughton, and the good looking one is Rick Hagler.  My, Band of Brothers.
