A des_c_r_i_p_tion of the NW part of the USA through image of a train. “Riding on that train, the Northwest Express, riding through the rain, on the North, West, Express”


Rob Tobias: Acoustic guitar, Keyboard, Vocals, Harmonica
Rich Glauber: Bass, Harmony Vocals
Nancy Evergreen: Harmony Vocals
Ralph Novak: Electric and Acoustic Guitar
Sean Brennan: Drums
Jerry Zybach: Slide Guitar

Using the train motif, was just a great way to the story of the Northwest from the days of Lewis and Clark to the micro brew culture of today.
THE NORTHWEST EXPRESS by Rob Tobias
(chorus) Riding on that train, The Northwest Express
Riding through the rain, on the North, West, Express

Before the 1800s, it was Indian land
Then came Lewis and Clark and “Go West Young Man”
For so many people, it’s the end of the rainbow
Breakin’ free from California, New York, Chicago...

(chorus) Riding on that train, The Northwest Express

There’s that independent spirit, and the micro brew
Plenty of wholesome food, and people good to you
You can stand by the river, up in the Cascades high
Not too far from the coastline where the eagle still flies

(chorus) Riding on that train, The Northwest Express

They got some good clean water, crystal clear lakes
Old growth forests, and salmon steaks
Ducks and Beavers, Huskies and Cougars
Mariners, and Blazers, hippies and loggers

(chorus) Riding on that train, The Northwest Express x
