Notes
-  A railroad work song, sung by "Uncle" Bradley Eberhard, a work-crippled, 66-year-old African American. He worked more than a quarter of a century in railroad work gangs and is still proud of his role as singer when the men were laying track. Now toothless and a semi-invalid, he receives a $1 monthly dole from Highlands County.
-  Performance Note: "Big Boy, Can't You Move 'em" (vocals) performed by Uncle Bradley Eberhard at Sebring, Florida, on July 26, 1940.
