Thread Name: Help: Meaning of Six White Horses
Subject: RE: Help: Meaning of Six White Horses
This song was written about the transcontinental railroad. When it was built, it was a big deal. According to historical train websites, she'll be driving six white horses is talking about the train (called she) and driving six white horses are the engines to the train. 6000 horsepower? 600 horsepower? Not sure, but makes sense.
