sometimes – the songs you are humming – can tell you something…..

Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens)

Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens)

you must have had that feeling – there you are doing the washing up – walking down the street – or whatever – and you find yourself humming a tune – one you didn’t like much – or one you loved a long time ago – and it keeps coming back!

Well this is what I have been humming, even whistling, for the past week, or more.  Cat Stevens – I ask you – from back when?

I found an old compilation album I had – 1975! – and have been playing it endlesley the last few days – trying to write down the lyrics – silly me – you can just look them up on the internet these days – but I also realised why, when feeding the chickens every day last week, I was whistling this – because I found that the first verse of this was what my subconscious was trying to tell me –

Now I’ve been happy lately – and I have!

listen to it yourself – and don’t blame me if you find yourself humming along to it – smile! This video is from a 1976 tour – doesn’t he look young!

Peace Train Lyrics

from Saturnight

Cat Stevens - lyrics Saturnight Other Album Songs


“Peace Train” is track #1 on the album Saturnight. It was written by Yusuf Islam, Cat Stevens.

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 it’s 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 the peace train
Yes, peace train holy roller

Everyone jump upon the peace train
Come on the peace train

Get your bags together
Go bring your good friends too
‘Cause it’s getting nearer
It soon will be with you

Now come and join the living
It’s not so far from you
And it’s getting nearer
Soon it will all be true

Oh, peace train sounding louder
Glide on the peace train
Come on the peace train
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 the peace train
Yes, peace train holy roller

Everyone jump upon the peace train
Come on, come on, come on
Yes, come on the peace train
Yes, it’s a peace train

Come on the peace train
Oh peace train
