This Train (Is Bound For Glory)    (1939)

(Chorus)
This train is bound for glory, this train
This train is bound for glory, this train
This train is bound for glory
Don't ride nothin' but the righteous and the holy
This train is bound for glory, this train

Well
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
No crap shooters and midnight ramblers
This train don't carry no gamblers, this train

Well
This train don't carry no liars, this train
This train don't carry no liars, this train
This train don't carry no liars
No hypocrites, and no high-flyers
This train don't carry no liars, this train

Well
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 don't carry no rustlers, this train

Well
This train don't pull no jokers, this train
This train don't pull no jokers, this train
This train don't pull no jokers
No whiskey drinkers, no cigar smokers
This train don't pull no jokers, this train

Because this train's a clean train, this train
This train's a clean train, this train
This train's a clean train
Everybody ridin' it in Jesus' name
This train's a clean train, this train
