Oh this train...
I'm ridin' this train...
Don't you wanna ride?

Grab your ticket and your suitcase
Thunder's rollin' down this track
Well, you don't know where you're goin' now
But you know you won't be back
Well darlin' if you're weary
Lay your head upon my chest
We'll take what we can carry
And we'll leave the rest

Big wheels rolls through fields where sunlight streams
Meet me in a land of hope and dreams

I will provide for you
And I'll stand by your side
You'll need a good companion now
For this part of the ride
Leave behind your sorrows
Let this day be the last
Tomorrow there'll be sunshine
And all this darkness past

Big wheels roll through fields where sunlight streams
Meet me in a land of hope and dreams

Well, this train
Carries saints and sinners
This train
Carries losers and winners
This train
Carries whores and gamblers
This train
Carries lost souls
I said, this train
Dreams will not be thwarted
This train
Faith will be rewarded
This train
Hear the steel wheels singin'
This train
Bells of freedom ringin'

This train
Carries saints and sinners
This train
Carries losers and winners
This train
Carries whores and gamblers
This train
Carries lost souls
I said, this train
Carries broken-hearted
This train
Thieves and sweet souls departed
This train
Carries fools and kings
This train
All aboard

I said now, this train
Dreams will not be thwarted
This train
Faith will be rewarded
This train
Hear the steel wheels singin'
This train
Bells of freedom ringin'

Come on this train...

People get ready
You don't need no ticket
All you gotta do is
Just get on board
On board this train
People get ready
You don't need no ticket
(Oh I know you don't)
You don't need no ticket
You just get on board
(People get ready)
You just thank the lord
(People get ready)
You just thank the lord
(People get ready)
You just thank the lord
(People get ready)

Come on this train
People get ready
Come on this train
People get ready
