Little Toy Trains

This might have been posted yesterday except that I liked the White Christmas/Blue Christmas segue so much.

Setting up a train track around the tree is a strong Christmas memory for many American baby boomers, so I was excited to discover this song. The first version that I listened to was a perfect studio mix and I muttered as I listened, “Now Glen, my little rhinestone cowboy, it may still be the 1960s, but girls also played with all the toys that Santa is pulling out of his sack!” Upon further investigation, however, I discovered this version and cut Glen some slack since it is a lullaby that he sang to his son, who actually fell asleep under bright studio lights while being filmed for broadcast TV.
