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

I've been smiling lately, dreaming about the world as one
And I believe it could be, something good is bound to come

For out on the edge of darkness, there rides a peace train
Peace train take this country, come take me home again

Peace train sounding louder
Ride on the peace train
Come on the peace train
Peace train is a holy roller
Everyone jump upon the peace train
This is the peace train

Get your bags together, come bring your good friends too
Because it's getting nearer, soon it will be with you

Come and join the living, it's not so far from you
And it's getting nearer, soon it will all be true

Peace train sounding louder
Ride on the peace train
Come on the peace train

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

For out on the edge of darkness, there rides a peace train
Peace train take this country, come take me home again

Peace train sounding louder
Ride on the peace train
Come on the peace train
Peace train is a holy roller
Everyone jump upon the peace train
This is the peace train
Come on the peace train
Come on come on, come on
The peace train

I guess you either like Natalie's voice or you don't. I do. Its a heartfelt version, not some let's get together for a tribute CD and see if we can pull of this tune effort.

yup
this cover is :puke: the original cat stevens song is :sunny:
My first thought on hearing this was "Blasphemy!" I agree -- just because you can doesn't mean you should. But then I hate Natalie Merchant's voice anyway.
Production is quite good, I just don't think her voice is quite convincing for me on this tune. Not too bad though.
I always liked this song 30 some years ago, and it's nice to hear it reborn by someone other than the former Cat (Yusuf What the Hell's My Name?) Stevens.
yuk ! Let's take a great song and turn it into trash...

Nice production
I'm with the leathepea...Cat Stevens can't be beat.
A nice cover from Cat Stevens ?
Man I wish you would play the original. Cat Stevens was amazing.
Thank you! This version is no longer available on new pressings of this CD.
