Default Freight Train

I recently added Freight Train, by Elizabeth Cotten to my play list. As I understand it, she wrote this song when she was 11 years old and played it her entire life. She played a guitar strung for a right-handed player, but played it upside down. I was looking for different arrangements on line and came across this version she played in her later years. Simple but inspirational acoustic guitar playing. I thought some of you might enjoy.
