Zeke's son Billy is following in his fathers foot steps as a Commuter rail employee. During there travels both Jay and Zeke became friends with singer Harry Chapin. Even though Harry is no longer with us, the Marsden's and Chapin's have remained close and Harry's brother Steve wrote this song in memory of Zeke and the 1921.
