    The lyrics of Chapin’s “30, Pounds of Bananas” tell a story quite close to the actual events of March 18, , in Scranton, Pennsylvania. On that day, year-old trucker Eugene P. Sesky was returning home with a load of bananas he’d picked up in Weehawken, New Jersey.

    Carrying thirty thousand pounds of bananas. Carrying thirty thousand pounds (hit it Big John) of bananas. He was a young driver, Just out on his second job. And he was carrying the next day's pasty fruits For everyone in that coal-scarred city Where children play without despair In backyard slag-piles and folks manage to eat each day About thirty thousand pounds of bananas.

    Yes, there were thirty thousand pounds of bananas. He barely made the sweeping curve that led into the steepest grade. And he missed the thankful passing bus at ninety miles an hour.

    Harry Chapin (December 7, – July 16, ) was an American singer and songwriter. Chapin's debut album, Heads and Tales (), was a success thanks to the single "Taxi". His follow-up album, Sniper and Other Love Songs, was less successful; but his third, Short Stories, was a major success. Verities & Balderdash, released soon after, was even more successful, bolstered by the chart.

    This is one of my favorite childhood albums. My dad had the cassette of "Greatest Stories" and my brother, sister and I all cheered when 30, Pounds of Bananas came on, even when my father turned down Harry's brother proclamations that his final verses "sucked." For the most part this album stands up to my childhood nostalgia.

    30, Pounds of Bananas is a Harry Chapin song released on the Verities and Balderdash album.. This song was based on an actual truck wreck in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Jerry Lynott, a writer for Times-Leader, looked back on the March 18, truck accident this story was based on recently.. In spite of the serious theme, Harry had a fun time with end of this song in concert supposedly coming.
