Refrain:
Git on board, little children,
Git on board, little children,
Git on board, little children,
Dere's room for many a mo'.

1 De Gospel train's a-comin',
I hear it jus' at han',
I hear de car wheels rumblin',
An' rollin' thro' de lan'. [Refrain]

2 I hear de train a-comin',
She's comin' roun' de curve,
She's loosened all her steam an' brakes,
An' stainin' eb'ry nerve. [Refrain]

3 De fare is cheap an' all can go,
De rich an' poor are dere,
No second class aboard dis train,
No diff'rence in de fare. [Refrain]
