“This Train”, a traditional song, often played by Woody Guthrie and Johnny Cash, is the Peace Song of the Day for January 3rd. You can find the lyrics and chords to this song in the Rise Up Singing songbook on page 97. This is another song which has religious words and a gospel flavor, but has spoken to people of all faiths and non-faiths over the years.
A really cool version from the Railroad Revival Tour:
Johnny Cash has at least two songs about truth. This one is about young people and the truth. “What Is Truth?” by Johnny Cash is the Peace Song of the Day for 12/22. Thanks to Bill McNulty for bringing our attention to this song. You can listen to Bill’s radio show at lunchtime on Thursdays at WUSB 90.1FM Stony Brook (NY).
