    A great song. To bad there isn’t any more of these songs nowadays

      This is a great song. I have a file of it being sung by so many different folk singers, and everyone is great.

    When this came out, 500 miles was quite a trek. Sure there were railroads and commercial planes (I’m not quite that old) but still 500 anything was considered pretty darned big.

    Now, not so much, I don’t think. If it were written today it might even be 5,000 miles. LOL

      Those were the days of trains too. I would love to have lived when trains had their heyday here. The I Love Lucy where they travel on a train across the country is a favorite of mine. I want to sleep in a Pullman!

      5,000 miles is a single flight!
