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

'Cos 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 on the peace train
Come on now, peace train

Get your bags together
Go bring your good friends too
'Cos 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 now, 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?

'Cos 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, the peace train
Yes, peace train, holy roller
Everyone jump on the peace train

Come on, come on, come on
Yes, come on, peace train
Yes, it's the peace train
Come on now, peace train
Oh, peace train
