Let’s Ride the Peace Train

“Peace Train” is a 1971 song by British singer-songwriter Cat Stevens (now known as Yusuf Islam), taken from his album “Teaser and the Firecat”.

In this “Song Around The World” version, Yusuf / Cat Stevens has teamed up with over 25 musicians from 12 countries to create a new version of his song track.

I was so moved by the song that I wanted to share it with you.

And here are just some of the lyrics if you want to sing along! laughing

“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
Someday it’s going to come

‘Cause I’m on the edge of darkness
There rides the Peace Train
Oh, Peace Train take this country
Come take me home again.”

Was there anything in particular that you enjoyed? The music? The text? The pictures? I’d love to know.
