This train is bound for glory

?© Traditional

This old gospel tune is also called “This train”.
This song tells about the Chapel cars, churches-on-rails, that followed the railroads west from 1890 to the 1940s and brought the gospel and the sacraments to the people living along the tracks.
Lyrics:
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 an’ the glory,
This train is bound for glory, this train.

This train don’t carry gamblers, this train,
This train don’t carry gamblers, this train,
This train don’t carry gamblers,
No hypocrites, no midnight ramblers,
This train is bound for glory, this train.

This train is build for speed now, this train,
This train is build for speed now, this train,
This train is build for speed,
Fastest train you ever did see,
This train is bound for glory, this train.

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 fllyers,
This train is bound for glory, this train.

This train don’t pay no transportation, this train,
This train don’t pay no transportation, this train,
This train don’t pay no transportation,
Noo Jim Crow and no discrimination,
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.
