  6. Papa Lightfoot - Mean Ol' Train (1954) FAST FREIGHT TRAIN..........." PEG LEG" SAM JACKSON "Peg Leg Sam taught himself to play harmonica as a small child. He left home at the age of 12 and never stopped roving. He shined shoes, worked as a houseboy, cooked on ships, hoboed, and then made a living busking on street corners. He lost his leg in 1930, trying to hop a train but made a peg out of a fence post, bound it to his stub with a leather belt and kept moving. He joined the medicine show circuit in 1937, often performing with Pink Anderson. His ability to play two harmonicas at once (while one went in and out of his mouth) made him an attraction; he could also play notes on a harmonica with his nose." -- wiki Freight Train - Sonny Terry, Brownie McGhee "Blind harp wizard Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee, a spectacular guitar picker, had a 35-year-long partnership that helped to define Folk/Blues."
