Lyrics/Music Trad. arr. Silvers
The gospel train is a comin'
I hear it yes at hand
I hear the car was movin'
And a rumblin' through the land
Oh get on board, get on board, get on board
There's room for many a more
I hear the bell and twinkle
A coming around the curve
She's playing all her steaming power
And straining every nerve
Oh get on board, get on board, get on board
There's room for many a more
The fare is cheap and all can go
The rich and poor are there
No second class on board this train
No difference in the fare
Oh get on board, get on board, get on board
There's room for many a more
She's there and now the station
Or better don't be late
But come and get your ticket
And be ready for this train
Oh get on board, get on board, get on board
There's room for many a more
Oh get on board, get on board, get on board
Little children
There's room for many a more
