Looking for female artist and song/cd title. The rest of the song is ... so get up and climb aboard.

Thank you in advance for any help.

I think the song you have in mind is by the English singer/songwriter, Pete Morton. It's a fine song! As for a female singer who's recorded it, I know Eileen McGann has done it:

I saw Pete at a gig last night, he said he thought The Poozies had recorded the song.
More detail about Pete is available on the web through the Harbourtown Records Web Site.
Pete said he'd asked Harbourtown to put the lyrics of Another Train on the site, but I couldn't find them. I'll post them here when I've had chance to do the transcription.

Great song, I think the other guys were on the wrong track. (sorry, poor pun) I wish I could remember more but here is all I know. If more comes to mind I'll post it.

I beleive the artist was a singer/song writer from the Austin Tx. music scene. She passed away 5-10 years ago and they held a benifit concert to help pay her medical bills. Sorry, don't remeber her name, the record title might be, 'This rythm is mine', but I had no luck finding it.

I can add only a little to your lyrics.

There's another train there always is so get up and climb aboard another train

Don't look back at past mistakes ??? and past regrets will only drain you.

Hope this helps in your search. You might try calling your favorite folk radio station, the song still gets a little air time.

Another Train

The beginning is now,
it will always be.
You say you lost your chance,
then fate brought you defeat.
But that means nothing,
you look so sad.
You've been listening to those,
who say you missed your chance.

There's another train,
there always is.
Maybe the next, one is yours,
get up and climb aboard,
another train.

You may feel your done,
but there's no such thing.
Although your standing on your own,
your own breath is king.
The beginning is now,
don't turn around.
for regrets about mistakes,
they will only drain.

We crawl in the dark sometimes,
we think too much.
We fill our heads with the craziest things,
that only break our hearts.
I know you've seen,
what this earth can do.
When it's dragging down another load,
that's worrysome for you.

I know it's hard,
we can feel confused.
We can cram ourselves with it all,
'til we feel we cannot move.
Building worlds,
that don't exist.
Imagination sometimes plays,
the worst tricks.

There's another train,
there always is.
Maybe the next, one is yours,
get up and climb aboard.

There's another train,
there always is,
Maybe the next, one is yours,
get up and climb aboard,
another train.

Lyrics and tune: Pete Morton
Recorded on: Jo Freya & Pete Morton B.T.L.CD2 1997
(thanks to Pete Morton for his permission to post)

I'm pretty sure this is the one.

Well, I just posted my own question to this board yesterday, and by coincidence (?) I think I happen to know the answer to this question. Consider it a payback for the help I've gotten so far (thank you Dale and Joe).

As I said in my question, I'm the farthest thing from a folk expert, but I believe that the artist/album you are thinking of is Sally Barker, "This Rhythm is Mine" (1990). I think it can be special ordered from Borders.com.

I had searched for info on this song, too, after it was given to me, untitled and unattributed, on a tape. I found it once and misplaced the note; your message prompted me to search again. Great lyrics, beautiful voice.

Re: the comments from Sam and AndyG, I note that Sally was a founding member of the Poozies, and has recorded songs with Pete Morton, as well.

I hope this helps.

First time I ever heard that one was at a singaround in Buntingford, a few miles from here. There used to be a railway station at Buntingford, but they closed the line down. Then I heard it ast Sidmouth. There used to be a train line going there too.

I've got the song filed in my mind as the obverse of City of New Orleans.

If the recording is in Ab, then the chords in Ab would be great.

Even though you asked for this in Ab, I am giving it to you in C, because it a pain to play in Ab on the guitar, and it is a fairly standard thing in C, moving down in the bass to G on the guitar(people used to thing of it as the "Mr. Bojangles" progression, but it really comes from the Pachelbel Canon, a classical piece, written about three hundred years ago)

The song simply repeats this chord progression, four slow, stately beats to the measure(two counts on each chord)both verse and chorus(the slash marks divide the measures):

||:C-Cmaj7/C6-C/F-Fmaj7|F6-G7:||

Basically, you move downwards scale-wise from the bass C note,C-B-A-G, then change to the F chord, and do the same, F-E-D-D but instead of moving to the C note on the last two counts, you stay on the D note and play G7 chord--

M.Ted, thanks for chords & explanation. My recording is in C and I was playing with this over the weekend. (In the verse section I hear Am and Dm before F and G7?) I need to go study yours now... this is great!

Yep: the Poozies did a great close harmony unaccompanied version on their first album. Also I was listening to Eileen McGann's version thius very morning while driving to work. That's good, too.

Subject: Pete Morton: 'Another Train'
From: Zebedee
Date: 10 Nov 00 - 11:53 AM

This is a long shot, but I'll try anyway...

Does anyone have a .mp3 or .wav file (or could make one) of Pete Morton's 'Another Train' that they'd be willing to share with me?

I had the tape of 'One Big Joke' but having searched through my (albeit chaotic) tape boxes several times, I seem to have lost it.

I've 'phoned every record shop within reach, to try and buy the CD, but none have it in stock.

The reason for my urgency is that I'm seeing a friend of mine tomorrow, who has just lost her job, and is feeling very down. I don't see her very often, hence needing a recording now.

I remember a few years back when I lost my job, I felt that my whole world had fallen in. I listened to 'Another Train' endlessly, and it really helped me. I'm hoping to offer my friend similar solace.

I know that the song has been discussed a few times here, so I'll be able to give her the lyrics.

I've also managed to find versions by The Poozies and Sally Barker on Napster, but it's the Pete Morton original that I really want.

If anyone can help, I'd be hugely grateful.

Thank you

Ed

If anyone thinks I'm trying to get a 'free' copy be assured that I've already ordered a CD copy. It won't come 'til next week though.
