Pure American Sixties Soul


Eva Cassidy at Blues Alley

PEOPLE GET READY
Curtis Mayfield, 1964

People get ready
There's a train a-coming
You don't need no baggage
You just get on board
All you need is faith
To hear diesels a-humming
You 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 the doors and board them
There's room for all
Among the loved and lost

Now there ain't no room
For the hopeless sinner
Who's hard on mankind
Just to save his own
Have pity on those
Whose chances are thinner
Cause there's no hiding place
From the Kingdom's Throne

People get ready
There's a train a-coming
You don't need no baggage
You just get on board
All you need is faith
To hear diesels a-humming
You don't need no ticket
You just thank the Lord
