Week One - Another Train

This term we are starting a new song every two weeks, and working on it over the subsequent weeks. This week we enjoyed learning the chorus of Pete Morton's classic song of hope, "Another Train".

There's another train,
There always is.
Maybe the next one is your's.
Get up and climb aboard another train.

We'll start on the verses next week. Our version of the song has been inspired by The Poozies, who played at Woodford Folk Festival and Illawarra Folk Festival this January. Click on the links to find out more about the band and the festivals.

Below is a youtube link of The Poozies singing Another Train, and also check out the songwriter himself, Pete Morton. That link is his own site, and here's an interview he did on the BBC. They start talking about Another Train at 6:05.
