8ch(pl) Origins: Morningtown Ride (Malvina Reynolds) (40) Who wrote 'Morningtown Ride' 18 Feb 05

I often perform this number, here in Nova Scotia. It was on a Seekers LP back in the sixties, along with "You Were On My Mind" and "World of Our Own".

It Starts:

Train Whistle Blowing, Makes a Sleepy Noise,
Underneath Their Blankets, are all the Girls and Boys.
Heading from the Staion, Out Along the Bay,
All Bound for Morningtown, many miles away.

I look at it as a children's song taking a train ride to dreamland.

Does anyone know who wrote it? It's a great song.

Glen Simpson
