Lyrics
Dream Train

I dreamed I was travelling on a slow slow train,
The train to Paradise.
All the people on board were singing and there was laughter in their eyes.

I looked up and down for the driver,
But he was nowhere to be found.
Someone said “You gotta’ learn to drive, if you wanna keep your feet on the ground.”

Chorus.
Everybody gotta travel this road,
You can travel it low or high.
If you wanna take the high road to the Pearly Gates,
All you do is spread your wings and fly.

I dreamed I was travelling on a slow slow train,
The train to Paradise.
All the people on board were singing and there was laughter in their eyes.

I looked up and down for the driver,
But he was nowhere to be found.
Someone said “You gotta’ learn to drive, if you wanna keep your feet on the ground.”

Chorus
Everybody gotta travel this road,
You can travel it low or high.
If you wanna take the high road to the Pearly Gates,
All you do is spread your wings and fly.


I pondered the meanin’ of this dream,
As it kept running through my mind.
Keep going forward, no more turnin’ back
It’s just a one-way line.

We gotta steer a path that is wide and straight,
And welcome other people on board.
Spread a little love and laughtewr if we can.
At the end we’ll have a higher score

Repeat all and Ad Lib.
Maurice Vizard

Was not expecting this. Very cool blues based rock! Really great mix. Love the resonator guitar on the left. The bass and drums move a lot of air. Nice vocal and melody.

Dreams and trains - what's not to like?!
Maurice, way to stretch-out with a bit of strong-bottom pop-rock. It's good to hear you hit revisit traditional rock structures sometimes, and to hear you go at it is a lot of fun because I'm listening for how you treat it, knowing your strong melodic background. On the lyrics: Why not? Dreams and trains together... fine combo there.

Thanks Bob
glad you like my rock side. When I was young this kind of song didn't suit my voice at all, but since I got older and acquired a few croaks and squeaks in my voice I find I'm OK here LOL, regards M

crissew said 2416 days ago (August 11th, 2010)
Oh yeah
There is a lot of thump to that back beat here. straight driving beat with a huge sounding bass guitar behind it. Cool bluesy rock vibe, vocals work great. Well done! One small nit I would make would be to take the chorus off the guitar that is panned right. A matter of taste I suppose, I just found it a bit distracting for some reason. Great work here.

Really nice
to see you here Charles and extra pleased you liked this. The guitars are midi apart from one Dobro in there, so I don't know whether chorus is part of that particular guitar sound on the right, since I just used it as it comes LOL. Thanks again for calling, regards M

I've
just had a listen to the original of this and I'm sorry I missed it Maurice. A perfect bluesy song and I love this remix, them guitars sound great and you sing a great vocal, sounds stronger in this mix.
Good chug along beat to this and a 70's sound that takes me back to my youth.
Woomph...what a great word that is, lol, loved it all Maurice, great stuff!

This is a tune you want to, well, bop to! Fun to listen to and man I can't help but BOP my head back and forth! What effect do you have on your lead vocal - sounds like some kind of harmonizer - interesting effect. Had fun listening to this one Maurice - thanks!
