“Life’s Railway to Heaven” can now be easily learned at home through Layne Publications. Originally a joint effort by Charles Davis Tillman, son of a Baptist preacher, and M.E. Abbey, “Life’s Railway to Heaven” became one of the most well-loved and recorded songs of all time. Patsy Cline recorded it as a solo in 1959 and also as a duet with Willie Nelson boosting its popularity further. It has also been recorded by many artists including Johnny Cash, The Oak Ridge Boys, Tennessee Ernie Ford, The Carter Family, Russ Taff and many others. Brad Paisley sang it once when he was a guest on Garrison Keillor’s hilarious and popular radio show, Prairie Home Companion. The song has sometimes been referred to as “Life is Like a Mountain Railroad” which is also the first line of the song. Today, this song is still a favorite and a popular choice for bluegrass jam sessions.
