About The Train Is Coming

"The Train Is Coming" is a 1966 single by Jamaican musician Ken Boothe, and one of Boothe's earliest successful songs. It was written by Boothe and Coxsone Dodd. The 1966 version was backed by The Wailers. In 1995 Boothe re-worked a version of the song with recording artist Shaggy, and that version was used in the soundtrack for the film Money Train. The British reggae band UB40 covered the song as a UK single, which is included on their album Labour of Love III.

Mmmm
This girl got me waiting and the time has come for a decision to be made
Oh yes ooh well
Tell them ken boothe

I say the train is coming baby
I say the train is coming now
I say the train is coming baby
I say the train is coming now
So long I've been waiting, waiting for you, (wait on my knees) oh lord
Now the time has come, when it's between you and me, oh lord
Because the train is coming baby
I say the train is coming now, now, now, now
I say the train is coming baby
And I am leaving on that train, lord

Woman me a go away and me naw come back
Stand up at the station with me suitcase packed
Gal how me love you but me naw turn back
Tell me right now this minute if you you coming or not
Stand up at the station at about six o'clock
Rain it a pour and lightning start to flash
I man wonder to myself whether she coming or not
Or it's about time I man wake up and face the fact
Well she find a new love and it's holding her back
That is why I'm standing by myself on the railroad track
Boop boop bop, heart a beat non-stop
There's no wonders or signs are you coming back

I say the train is coming baby
I say the train is coming now
Everyday I pray for this little hour, ooh yau
Now the time has come and I want you to stand by me, ha
Because the train is coming baby, mm
I say the train is coming now, now, now, now
And we will roam this land, mmm, where we all will be free, lord

Look how long she have the general a wait
Time a run out and it a get kinda late
I am losing patience I'm in a bad state
Set me foot up on the train you naw go see me back again-a
