11 Life's Railway To Heaven

Music Video by HP Schmider performing "Life's Railway to Heaven" - one of my favorite among southern gospel-hymns and bluegrass. In 1909, Charles Davis Tillman published the lyrics, originally written by Eliza R. Snow and M.E. Abbey in the 1890's. The song compares our journey through life with a mountain railway - guided by the blessed saviour, till we finally reach that blissful shore. In the video, you enjoy the fascinating landscape between Titisee and Schluchsee in the High Black-Forest-Mountains in the south of Germany - welcome as a passenger in a nostalgic steam-train.

I present pure acoustic-music - especially rhythm 'n blues and southern gospels - recorded in the humble acoustic-studio under the roof of my old house in the Black Forest Mountains in Germany.
