The Return Of Friday Night Is Rockabilly Night 32

‘Train I ride sixteen coaches long
Well that long black train carries my baby home’

From Sun Records all the way back in 1953 this is Little Junior Parker and the original version of Mystery Train, co-written by Parker and Sam Phillips. Elvis’ version came out two years later and helped invent modern music. I’m not sure Little Junior Parker’s song is rockabilly, just early rock and roll, but it’s Friday night, it’s sheeting down outside and who’s splitting hairs?
