I'm walkin' all around lookin' up and down this railroad I'm walkin' all around lookin' up and down this train All I gotta see is a place for me to grab a hold of And I'll be on this train and I won't be back again
I'm over qualified for any other ride I can think of I got a PhD in Sun and Wind and Rain I had a reservation 'bout every occupation I was ever on the brink of 'Til the day my heart got given to the rhythm of the train
Station to station, coast to coast Not that much of anything in mind No expectations, way less than most But I wanted to see Winslow one more time
I'm walkin' all around, lookin' up and down this railroad I'm walkin' all around, lookin' up and down this town I'll bid adeau to the precious few I knew here And I'll be on my way and I won't be back around
My mother married an oxygenarian ladies man He'd take her dancing with a tank of oxygen The ladies kept him goin' He'd recite for them his favorite koan He specialized in Western Swing and Zen
Station to station, coast to coast Not that much of anything in mind No expectations, way less than most As long as I got oxygen and wine
I keep on hearing 'bout the disappearing ozone layer I keep on hearing 'bout the disappearing Greenland Shelf I keep hearing all about the disappearing middle class I figure I'll be doing some disappearing myself

Jeanie Voss from SouthI thought I knew all of Jackson Browne’s songs and then I came across “Leaving Winslow”. I don’t know how I had missed it. It made me so happy. Put it on repeat and cleaned my whole house. Of course Jackson Browne is and has always been my favorite artist of all time.
The bedrock of David Guetta's Nicki Minaj-featuring single "Hey Mama" is a sample of "Rosie," a 1940s prison recording from folk archivist Alan Lomax that songwriter Esther Dean first showed the French DJ on YouTube.
