In Finnish the song has been recorded under at least five different song titles. In 1963 Erkki Pohjanheimo recorded the song under title “Juna jättää laiturin” (English: “The Train Leaves the Platform”). Lyrics were written by Reino Helismaa. Pohjanheimo recorded the song from its French title “J’entends siffler le train”, and it was on the B side of a 7″ single called “Kutsukaa Tri Casey” (almost direct traslation from “Callin’ Dr. Casey”, a hit by John D. Loudermilk). The following year a Finnish vocal quartet Neljä Penniä (English: Four Pennies) recorded a 7″ single that consisted of two songs: “Washington Square” on the A side, and on the flip side there was a Finnish version of “500 Miles” under the title “Pitkät illat” (English: “The Long Evenings”), lyrics by Sauvo Puhtila. Also in 1964 another version of the song was recorded by folk-spirited trio Anki, Bosse & Robert and titled “Viimeinen vihellys” (English: “The Last Whistle”), lyrics by Juha Vainio. “Viimeinen vihellys” was also a 7″ single B side, on the A side there was Will Holt’s song “Lemon Tree” (Finnish: “Sitruunapuu”). “Viimeinen vihellys” was released also on their self-titled record in 1965. In 1979 the song was recorded yet again, by Jukka Raitanen. This time it was called “Liian kaukana” (English: “Too Far Away”). Lyrics were written by Raul Reiman. This song was released on Raitanen’s album Yölinjalla. “Yölinjalla(in)” song is a Finnish version of the song “I Walk the Line” by Johnny Cash.
