Take That Night Train to Memphis (1948)

This ad from 1948 for the Frisco rail line reminds me of the Roy Acuff hit from 1943, “Night Train to Memphis”

Take that Night Train To Memphis
Take that Night Train To Memphis
Tell that engineer to pull the throttle open
Keep that engine stack a-smokin’,
I’m not kiddin’, I’m not jokin’
I’ll soon be with my girl, I’m hopin’.
