Song Lyrics

This is a song called, People Get Ready

People get ready there’s a train a’comin
Picking up passengers coast to coast
Faith is the key, open the doors and the borders
You don’t need no tickets, you just get on board

There is still room for the hopeless sinner
Who would hurt all mankind just to save his own
God have mercy I’m a hopeless sinner
But I know there’s a hiding place behind the kingdom throne, yessay

People get ready there’s a train a’coming
Picking up passengers coast to coast
Faith is the key to open the doors and the borders
You don’t need no ticket you just get on board, yay!

Oh…

You know uh, I’d like to apologize for being late for ya tonight
See I went to the doctor today and the doctor
He’s a doctor to look after the way I sing
And he said to me
You’re playing New Jersey, you’re playing Meadowlands
You won’t need to sing, these people will sing for you
So…the meaning the words he spoke to me
We decided to bring a recording mobile and we parked it
At the back so we could record the people of New Jersey
As they sang along with us
And I know they know the words to this song
Because it’s an old American gospel song
Written by Curtis Mayfield and I know you know
The words to this song

People get ready there’s a train a’comin
Picking up passengers coast to coast
Faith is the key to open the doors and the borders
You don’t need no ticket you just get on board, sing it

People get ready there’s a train a’comin
Picking up passengers coast to coast
Faith is the key, to open the doors and the borders
You don’t need no baggage you just get on board, hey!

Maybe I have found what I’m looking for
