List of train songs

"The Carrollton March, 1828"
Sheet music of the first-known train song, written for the ground-breaking of the first passenger railway in the U.S.[1]
Music by Arthur Clifton
Published July 1, 1828
Language English
Form March

A train song is a song referencing passenger or freight railroads. Trains have been a theme in both traditional and popular music since the first half of the 19th century and over the years have appeared in all major musical genres, including folk, blues, country, rock 'n roll, jazz, world, classical and avant-garde. While the prominence of railroads has faded in recent decades, the train endures as a common image in popular song.[2][3]

The earliest known train songs date to two years before the first public railway began operating in the United States. "The Carrollton March", copyrighted July 1, 1828, was composed by Arthur Clifton to commemorate the groundbreaking of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad. Another song written for the occasion, "Rail Road March" by Charles Meineke, was copyrighted two days after Clifton's, one day before the July 4 ceremonies. The number of songs that have appeared since then is impossible to determine, not only because of the difficulties in documenting the songs but also in defining the genre.[1]

Following is a list of about 1,000 songs by artists world-wide, alphabetized by song title. Most have appeared on commercially released albums and singles and are notable for either their composers, the musicians who performed them, or their place in the history of the form. Besides recorded works, the list includes songs that preceded the first wax cylinder records of the late 1800s and were published as either broadsides or sheet music.

For a song to be included in the list, trains or related vehicles such as trolleys and subways must be prominently featured in the lyrics or with instrumentals, suggested by the songs' sounds and rhythms. Songs whose titles or lyrics refer to trains only in passing, such as Bruce Springsteen's "I'm on Fire", Gordon Lightfoot's "Early Morning Rain" and Hank Williams's "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry", are not included.
