Have I got a story for you. I met him about 10 years ago at Poor David's Pub in Dallas on Lower Greenville Avenue. He told the story.
One night, he was playing a coffee house and played two sets. He was packing up his things to go home and the manager said that young man had a song for him to hear. Arlo said, "I'm tired, I've been singing my own songs." the managers aid that the young man would buy him a beer if he would just listen. Arlo said, "Fine, I will listen while I drink the beer and then I am going home."
The song was "City of New Orleans." He had almost walked out on his biggest commercial hit, though he did well with "Alice's Restaraunt" and the "Motor-cycle song (the significance of the Pickle.)"
"The conductor sings his songs again.
The passengers will please refrain.
This train got to disappear in railroad blues.
Good morning, America, how are ya?
Say, don't you know me?
I'm your native son.
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans.
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done."
