Train whistle blowin',
Makes a sleepy noise;
Underneath their blankets
Go all the girls and boys.
Rockin', rollin', ridin',
Out along the bay,
All bound for Morningtown,
Many miles away.

Driver at the engine,
Fireman rings the bell,
Sandman swings the lantern
To show that all is well.

Rockin', rollin', ridin',
Out along the bay,
All bound for Morningtown,
Many miles away.

Maybe it is raining
Where our train will ride;
All the little travellers
Are warm and snug inside.

Rockin', rollin', ridin',
Out along the bay,
All bound for Morningtown,
Many miles away.

Somewhere there is sunshine,
Somewhere there is day,
Somewhere there is Morningtown,
Many miles away.

Rockin', rollin', ridin',
Out along the bay,
All bound for Morningtown,
Many miles away.

Rockin', rollin', ridin',
Out along the bay,
All bound for Morningtown,
Many miles away.

    My dad used to sing this to me when I was younger to get me to sleep. I can still remember the lyrics word for word. I occasionally mutter them to myself as I lie in bed some nights. It still soothes me to this day. Such a beautiful lullaby. Makes me cry now, makes me so nostalgic of when I was small and scared and my dad would softly sing it and I'd be sound asleep everytime :)
    I plan on singing this to my children someday.

    I grew up in prince rupert. It rained in sheets, every day, every day, every day. I loved this song, always loved this song the moment I first heard it. I 'knew' living under rain not only does every cloud have a silver lining but that above every cloud there the sun always shines. Then, the leap to creating that within myself no matter what the climate, within or without, there is a light, a ray of hope. A bright shiny day, no matter how dark the night, morning brings the light. No matter how dark the spirit, hold on, hold on 'till morning. You will 'see' things a whole lot differently come morning.
