Representative Text

Chorus:
Brother, when that train comes along,
Brother, when that train comes along,
I will meet you at the station
When the train comes along.

1 I may be blind and I cannot see,
But I'll meet you at the station when the train comes along.
Brother, when the train comes along,
Brother, when the train comes along,
I will meet you at the station
When the train comes along. [Chorus]

2 I may be lame and I cannot walk,
But I'll meet you at the station when the train comes along.
Brother, when the train comes along,
Brother, when the train comes along,
I will meet you at the station
When the train comes along. [Chorus]

3 I may be deaf and I cannot hear,
But I'll meet you at the station when the train comes along.
Brother, when the train comes along,
Brother, when the train comes along,
I will meet you at the station
When the train comes along. [Chorus]

4 It may be late or it may be soon,
But I'll meet you at the station when the train comes along.
Brother, when the train comes along,
Brother, when the train comes along,
I will meet you at the station
When the train comes along. [Chorus]
