People Get Ready



People get ready
Theres a train a-coming
You dont need no baggage
You just get on board
All you need is faith
To hear the diesels humming
Dont 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
Theres room for all
Among the loved the most

There aint no room
For the hopeless sinner
Who would hurt all mankind just
To save his own
Have pity on those
Whose chances are thinner
Cause theres no hiding place
From the kingdoms throne

So people get ready
For the train a-comin
You dont need no baggage
You just get on board !
All you need is faith
To hear the diesels humming
Dont need no ticket
You just thank, you just thank the lord

Yeah
Ooh

Yeah
Ooh

Im getting ready
Im getting ready
This time Im ready
This time Im ready

Curtis Mayfield 1964








Zone 10 ~ s.e. FL

If I tell you that I had a Jeff Beck "album", does that say something about my age? Still a great guitarist!

Have you heard Eva Cassidy's version? It's beautiful.

Lot of talent, lot of message, on that stage. :-)
