Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Morningtown Ride  Malvina Reynolds

[F]Underneath their [C]blankets go [Dm]all the girls and [C]boys
* * F C
Heading from the station, out along the bay

[F]All bound for [C]Morningtown, [G7]many miles a-[C]way

C * F C
Sarah's at the engine, Tony rings the bell

[F]John swings the [C]lantern to [Dm]show that all is [C]well

* * F C
Rocking, rolling, riding, out along the bay

[F]All bound for [C]Morningtown, [G7]many miles a-[C]way

C * F C
Maybe it is raining where our train will ride

But [F]all the little [C]travellers are [Dm]snug and warm in-[C]side

C * F C
Somewhere there is sunshine, somewhere there is day

[F]Somewhere there is [C]Morningtown, [G7]many miles a-[C]way
