Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Little Red Caboose

I was quite surprised to find your search for the lyrics to the children's song "Little Red Caboose." My father, who passed away in the 70's wrote the song and there are more lyrics to what you show.

His name was DeLoyce White Moffitt (aka. Deke Moffitt). He was a very well-known band leader around the Cincinnati are and also toured around the U.S. You can see his photo on my website

Yes, the song is still under copyright. If you would like more information, please write me @

Hope this reaches you and provides some helpful information.
