This Train Is Bound For Glory

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Johnny Cash:
We’re going to ride the Bible train now.
No, some won’t ride, but we’re going to get on the Bible train.
Some ride, but not all the way.

The Bible train is in the yard now and it’s waiting.
And oh, it looks so good, but you might get bored and impatient.
Like those two good brothers over there.

They passed around the bottle in the car before they got on the train.
Just want to take one more for the road and then that leads to something else.
Well, they ain’t on the train no more and maybe 9 or 10 got off with them.

June Carter: There’s a sister in the church and she says to a friend:
Your husband works at night and so does mine.
Why don’t we just get together sometime when they’re gone?
Go downtown and find us some action.

Johnny: Well, then they got to get off the Bible train.

And then another man, he’s sitting over there looking at a woman in the corner.
And he gives her that eye you know.
And they meet later secretly, so they got to get off.
This train’s got a rule against adultery.

And while all this is happening, the train’s getting ready to go.
But there’s a lot more to get off for different reasons.
Just before the train pulls out, but listen it’s starting to move now.
Listen to it, here we go.

As it leaves, the man on the caboose with a long, white beard says:

This train is bound for glory, this train
This train is bound for glory, this train
This train is bound for glory, nobody rides it, but the righteous and the holy
This train is bound for glory, this train

This train is a free train, this train
This train is a free train, this train
This train is a free train, everybody rides in Jesus’ name
This train is a free train, this train

This train don’t pull no liars, this train
This train don’t pull no liars, this train
This train don’t pull no liars, the false pretenders and no backbiters
This train don’t pull no liars, this train

This train is a clean train, this train
This train is a clean train, this train
This train is a clean train, everybody rides it in Jesus’ name
This train is a clean train, this train

Do you want to ride it children, this holy train
Do you want to ride it children, this righteous train
Get on board, get on board
Get on board, get on board
Get on board, get on board this holy train

Get on board, get on board
Get on board, get on board Get on board, get on board this holy train
