Carlene Carter – Little Black Train lyrics
There's a little black train a-comin'
Set your business right
There's a little black train a-comin'
And it may be here tonight

Go tell that ballroom lady
All dressed in the worldly pride
That death's dark train is comin'
Prepare to take a ride

God sent to Hezekiah
A message from on high
You'd better set your house in order
'For you must surely die

He turned to the wall and, weeping
We see him hear in tears
He got his business fixed all right
God spared him fifteen years

There's a little black train a-comin'
Set your business right
There's a little black train a-comin'
And it may be here tonight

See that train with engine?
And one small baggage car
Your idle thoughts and wicked deeds
Will stop at the judgment bar

Oh, the man in darkness
Cares not for the gospel light
Till he suddenly heard the whistle blow
With the little black train in sight

There's a little black train a-comin'
Set your business right
There's a little black train a-comin'
And it may be here tonight
