  1. Mystery Train

    "Mystery Train" is a song recorded by American blues musician Junior Parker in 1953. Considered a blues standard, Parker, billed as "Little Junior's Blue Flames", recorded the song for producer/Sun Records owner Sam Phillips and it was released on the Sun label. The song was written by Junior Parker, with a credit later given to Phillips. One commentator noted "One of the mysteries about 'Mystery Train' was where the title came from; it was mentioned nowhere in the song". The song uses lyrics similar to those found in the traditional American folk music group Carter Family's "Worried Man Blues", itself based on an old Celtic ballad, and their biggest selling record of 1930: The train arrived sixteen coaches long The train arrived sixteen coaches long The girl I love is on that train and gone Parker's lyrics include: Train I ride sixteen coaches long Train I ride sixteen coaches long Well, that long black train carries my baby home "Mystery Train" was the follow-up single to Junior Parker's 1953 number five Billboard R&B chart release "Feelin' Good".
