This Friday’s song, City of New Orleans by Arlo Guthrie, was released in 1972. That was the year I graduated from St. John Prep in Danvers, MA and headed back to Long Island for college. The song, which was originally written by Steve Goodman, was also later recorded by Willy Nelson in the mid-eighties when I lived in Texas. I have strong emotional links to both versions and who/where I was at at those periods of my life. Hope you enjoy!
