This is one of our favorite bluegrass songs of all time! Louisa Branscomb wrote "Steel Rails" and it was recorded by the one and only, Alison Krauss. We performed this song years ago when Emmett first joined our group and worked it back up because so many of you requested it in the comments!
And this is our first video with the blond dobro Emmett acquired in early 2021. It's a Byrl with a deeper sound, perfect for hard-driving bluegrass songs. His original mahogany Scheerhorn isn't going anywhere, it's just more suited to melodic, pretty songs. We also bought Emmett a travel dobro for Christmas so he doesn't have to put his in the belly of an airplane when we're on tour. A man can never have too many dobros, right?

►LYRICS - Steel Rails
Steel rails, chasin' sunshine around the bend
Windin' through the trees like a ribbon in the wind
I don't mind not knowin' what lies down the track
'Cause I'm lookin' out ahead to keep my mind from turnin' back

It's not the first time I've found myself alone and known
If I really had you once then I'd have you when I'm gone
The whistle blowin', blowin' lonesome in my mind
Callin' me along that never-endin' metal line

Steel rails, chasin' sunshine around the bend
Windin' through the trees like a ribbon in the wind
I don't mind not knowin' what lies down the track
'Cause I'm lookin' out ahead to keep my mind from turnin' back

The sun is shining through the open boxcar door
Lyin' in my mind with the things I've known before
I've lost count of the hours, days and nights
The rhythm of the rails keeps the motion in my mind\r

Steel rails, chasin' sunshine around the bend
Windin' through the trees like a ribbon in the wind
I don't mind not knowin' what lies down the track
'Cause I'm lookin' out ahead to keep my mind from turnin' back [x2]

'Cause I'm lookin' out ahead to keep my mind from turnin' back
