I sang this song every night to the kids (when I was home) as they settled down to go to bed.
It is one of the banned songs now. (dad don’t sing that it makes me tired). This song was one I first heard when I was a child and i love the song.
Peter, Paul and Mary impacted my childhood with harmony and words.
If you miss the train that I am on.
You will know that I am gone.
You can hear the whistle blow 100 miles.
This is a sad song about leaving, and when the kids were little I was often leaving. But when I was home, I sang this too them every single night!
