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, no midnight ramblers,
This train don't carry no gamblers, this train.

This train is bound for glory, this train,
This train is bound for glory, this train,
This train is bound for glory,
Don't carry nothin' but the righteous an' the holy
This train is bound for glory, this train.

This train goes down the track, this train,
This train goes down the track, this train,
This train goes down the track,
And once you're on board you don't come back
This train goes down the track, this train

This train is bound for glory, this train,
This train is bound for glory, this train,
This train is bound for glory,
Don't carry nothin' but the righteous an' the holy
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
No Jim Crow and no discrimination,
This train don't pay no transportation, this train.

This train is bound for glory, this train,
This train is bound for glory, this train,
This train is bound for glory,
Don't carry nothin' but the righteous an' the holy
This train is bound for glory, this train.
