Well that gospel train is a' comin'
Comin' right down the track
That gospel train is a' comin'
Comin' right down the track
And when that train leaves the station
I can tell you right now it's never comin' back

You may think your train ain't a' comin'
'Till at least a quarter past nine,
You may think your train ain't a' comin'
'Till at least a quarter past nine,
But by the time you reach the platform
You'll find out you've been left behind

Well the train used to rule this country
It used to be the only way to go
But we've left the engineer behind these days
We think we've found a better way to go
But on that day whether the track's laid
He'll be comin' over ice and snow

Well that gospel train is a' comin'
Comin' right down the track
That gospel train is a' comin'
Comin' right down the track
And when that train leaves the station
I can tell you right now it's never comin' back

They said it moves too slow, it moves too slow
They said it moves too slow, it moves too slow
Oh... what do they know?
