  The Basement Tapes - may/october 1967  

People get ready, there's a train a-comin'
Don't need no baggage, just get on board
All you need is faith to hear the diesels hummin'
Don't need no ticket, you just thank the lord.

People get ready for the train to Jordan
Picking up passengers from coast to coast
Faith is the key, open up the doors an' board 'em
There's room for all among those loved the most.

There ain't no room for the hopeless sinner
Who would hurt mankind just to save his own
Have pity on those whose changes grow thinner
For there's no hidin' place against the kingdom's throne.

So people get ready, there's a train a-comin'
Don't need no baggage, you just get on board
All you need is faith, open the doors an' board 'em
Don't need no ticket, you just thank the lord.  up

cd imgSONGS FOR PATTY VALENTINE (T-320)

  S.I.R. rehearsals, New York - 19.oct.1975  

People get ready, there's a train a comin'
Pickin' up passengers from coast to coast
All you need is faith to hear the diesels a-hummin'
[There's room for all...] among those loved the most.

So people get ready for that train to Jordan
Picking up passengers [...low]
All you need is faith to hear those diesels hummin'
Don't need no ticket, you just thank the Lord.

There ain't no room for the hopeless sinner
Who would hurt all mankind just to save his own
Have pity on those whose chances get slimmer
For there's no hiding place among the kingdom's throne.

So people get ready, there's a train a-comin'
Don't need no baggage, you just get on board
All you need is faith to hear the diesels a-hummin'
Don't need no ticket, you just thank the Lord.  up
