This train is bound for glory, this train

This train is bound for glory, this train

This train is bound for glory

Carrying the righteous and the holy

This train is bound for glory, this train


This train don't carry no gamblers, this train;

This train don't carry no gamblers, this train;

This train don't carry no gamblers

Hypocrites nor midnight ramblers

This train is bound for glory, this train


This train don't carry no rustlers, this train;

This train don't carry no rustlers, this train;

This train don't carry no rustlers

Sidestreet walkers, two bit hustlers

This train is bound for glory, this train


This train, done carried my mother, this train;

This train, done carried my mother, this train;

This train, done carried my mother

Father sister and my brother

This train is bound for glory, this train


This train goes down the track, this train

This train goes down the track, this train

This train goes down the track

Once you're aboard you don't come back

This train is bound for glory, this train
