About the song
"900 Miles" is from a family of "I can't go back home this a way" songs. This particular version uses a melody that is very close to "Reuben's Train," with a coda based on the version of "900 Miles" that Woody Guthrie recorded. The two and three part vocal harmonies are in Southern Appalachian style.
