Pete Seeger

Peter "Pete" Seeger (born May 3, 1919) is an iconic American folk singer. A fixture on nationwide radio in the 1940s, he also had a string of hit records during the early 1950s as a member of The Weavers, most notably their recording of Lead Belly's "Goodnight, Irene", which topped the charts for 13 weeks in 1950. Members of The Weavers were blacklisted during the McCarthy Era. In the 1960s, he re-emerged on the public scene as a prominent singer of protest music in support of international disarmament, civil rights, and environmental causes. more »

Freight train, freight train going so fast
Freight train, freight train going so fast
Please don't say what train I'm on
And they won't know what route I've gone.
Please don't tell 'em what train I'm on
They won't know what route I've gone.

When I'm dead and in my grave
No more good times shall I pray,
Place a stone at my head and feet,
Tell the world that I've gone to sleep.
Place a stone at my head and feet,
Tell the world that I've gone to sleep.

Freight train, freight train going so fast
Freight train, freight train going so fast
Please don't tell 'em what train I'm on
They won't know what route I've gone.
