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 out on the edge of darkness
There rides a peace train
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

Chorus:

Peace train sounding louder
Ride on the peace train
Ooh-wah-ee-ah-ooh-ah
Come on peace train
Peace train holy roller
Everyone jump on the peace train
Ooh-wah-ee-ah-ooh-ah
Come on peace train

Get your bags together
Go bring all your good friends, too
'Cause it's getting nearer
Soon it 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

Repeat Chorus

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
Where peace train take this country
Come take me home again

Repeat Chorus

Final Chorus:

Peace train is sounding louder
Ride on the peace train
Ooh-wah-ee-ah-ooh-ah
Come on peace train
Peace train holy roller
Jump up on the peace train
Ride - ride on the peace train
