Cat Stevens - Peace Train


Now I’ve been happy lately,
Thinking about the good things to come,
And I believe it could be,
something good has begun

Oh I’ve been smiling lately,
dreaming about the world as one,
And I believe it could be,
some day its going to come

‘Cause out on the edge of darkness,
there rides a peace train,
Oh peace train take this country,
come take me home again

Now I’ve been smiling lately,
Thinking about the good things to come,
And I believe it could be,
something good has begun

Oh peace train sounding louder
Glide on the peace train
Come on now peace train
Yes, peace train holy roller
Everyone jump upon the peace train
Come on now peace train

Get your bags together,
go bring your good friends too,
‘Cause its getting nearer,
it soon will be with you,

Now come and join the living,
its not so far from you
And its getting nearer,
soon it will all be true

Oh peace train sounding louder
Glide on the peace train
Come on now peace train

Now I’ve been crying lately,
thinking about the world as it is
Why must we go on hating,
why can’t we live in bliss

‘Cause out on the edge of darkness,
there rides a peace train
Oh peace train take this country,
come take me home again

Oh peace train sounding louder
Glide on the peace train
Come on now peace train
Yes, peace train holy roller
Everyone jump upon the peace train
Come on peace train

  1. I came here again to read about blogging for peace and was humming this very song. Okay, now I'm off to read the blogging for peace carefully, I'm a bit confused about the dates.

  2. Hi G-G

    Yeah, I must admit the instructions are a bit convoluted, but I think the exact day to post your bit is Nov 6th.

    Now please tell me how to turn this song off in my head! I love it, but it's been there ever since I started my Peace blog post.
    @@ - my eyes spinning!

  4. Nice lyrics. I remember hearing it back in the 70s when he was popular. I hear that the Cat is trying to come back. Let's see if he has anymore hits.

    You should go listen to his music. I didn't really know him well either, but my husband has always been a fan. He made me go listen properly and I discovered some really beautiful songs and beautiful messages.

    I bought his latest CD for my husband last year. Some tracks we both loved, some seemed a bit bland, but then his style obviously had to change over 30 years.

    Glad it made you smile. It makes me feel optimistic every time I listen to it. :-)
