About the song


Johnny Cash: [in a 1994 'Life Magazine' interview]


"I recorded 'Orange Blossom Special' in the mid '60s,
and in those days everybody that recorded it claimed
the "arrangement" because no one knew who wrote it.
But Mother Maybelle Carter was at the session, and
I asked her, "Do you know who really wrote 'Orange

Blossom Special'?" She said, "Sure I do. Ervin Rouse
and his brother Gordon." And I said, "Where are they?"
She said, "Last time I heard, they were in Florida......"

Orange Blossom Special

1. Well look a-yonder comin'
Comin' on down the track
Well look a-yonder comin'
Comin' on down the track
It's the Orange Blossom Special
Bringin' my baby back

2. Well talk about her ramblin'
She's the fastest train on the line
Well talk about her travellin'
She's the fastest train on the line
She's the Orange Blossom Special
Rollin' down the seaboard line

3. Well, I'm going down to Florida
Get some sand in my shoes
Or maybe California
Get some sand in my shoes
I'll ride the Orange Blossom Special
And lose those New York blues
