Hi folks,

I'm a South african looking for lyrics of 2 songs that I remember as a child. This would have been about 1968/9 or so. Sadly, I neither know artist nor title of the songs, nor infact if they were international releases but only some lyrics. So this is probably really a waste of everybodies time BUT.... The first was "Blue train, you're coming in time,Blue train on the heartbreak railway line...." The other was a catchy funny song about puttting the baby to sleep; what I remember is this: "Oh mamma rock a baby, daddy rock a baby too and at last its a sleeping little baby" so there you have it, maybe somebody recalls these. I would appreciate any help I can get.

Blue train (on the heartbreak line) (scroll a bit for lyrics)

Tippy toeing (again scroll a bit for lyrics to the second song you wish)

Wolfgang

Come on back again louise - there aren't too many South Africans on the Mudcat, and you've got songs that we haven't heard.

Does anyone have the lyrics to The Ballad of the Yarmouth Castle, the wonderful song by Gordon Lightfoot? THANK YOU.

Glimmer, for maximum results, start a new thread for your request with the "Lyr Req" prefix preceding the name of the song as your new thread's title.

Another handy resource is the Google search engine at www.google.com. Type in a line of the song (usually more effective than typing in the song title) in the window there--if it's on the internet, it should come up.

Sorry, I'm not familiar with that song.

While we're about it, any current information about Jeremy Taylor, the South African expatriate singer?

BLUE TRAIN (ON THE HEARTBREAK LINE)
(John D. Loudermilk, © '61 Acuff-Rose Music)

Blue light flashing down the railroad track
Blue smoke boiling from the ol' smoke stack
Oh, blue train, don't leave me behind.
Blue steam flying from the blue choo-choo
Wheels a-whining a lonesome blues.
Oh, blue train on the heartbreak railroad line
Too doo too too too

My baby said she loved me true
Then she ran off with someone new.
Oh, blue train, don't leave me behind.
Yeah, let me ride till I lose
These doggone awful blues.
Oh, blue train on the heartbreak railroad line
Too doo too too too

Blue train, you're coming in on time
Blue train, you're coming in on time
'Cause I just lost that lovey of a-mine
Blue train on the heartbreak railroad line
Too doo too too too

TIPPY TOEING
(Bobby Harden, © '65 King Coal Music)

Well mama go a-tippy tippy toein' through the house
Gotta see what's the matter with the baby
It's been a-bawlin' and a-squallin' and a-kickin' on the wall
Well I guess it's dropped its little bottle maybe
Oh daddy come a-runnin' with the water and a rag
Gonna need another little diaper maybe
No need a-hesitatin' or a-wonderin' and a-waitin' I know what's the matter with baby
Oh mama rock a baby daddy rock a baby too
It's a-yawnin' and a-gettin' sleepy maybe
So mama keep a-rockin' daddy rock a little too and at last it's a sleepin' little baby

Well mama tippy toein' daddy tippy toein' too gonna try to do a little sleepin' maybe
Whether it'll be a minute or an hour or two is depending entirely on the baby
Well I hear the clock a-ringin' just a-dongin' and a-dingin'
Daddy go and make a little money maybe
Mama sleep a little longer but remember while he's gone
Won't you please take care of the baby
Oh mama rock a baby...
And at last it's a sleepin' little baby after all it's a sleepin' little baby
After all it's a sleepin' little baby after all it's a sleepin' little baby
