People get ready
There's a train a-coming
You don't need no baggage
You just get on board
All you need is faith
To hear the diesels humming
Don't 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
There's room for all
among the loved the most

There ain't 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 there's no hiding place
From the Kingdom's Throne

So people get ready
for the train a-comin'
You don't need no baggage
you just get on board !
All you need is faith
to hear the diesels humming
Don't need no ticket
you just thank, you just thank the Lord

Yeah
Ooh

Yeah
Ooh

I'm getting ready
I'm getting ready
this time I'm ready
this time I'm ready

es muy emocionante todo lo que está pasando. algun@s de los mismos que estuvieron con luther king, estaban el otro día en la toma de posesión.
...es que es muy simbólico, un negro en la Casablanca, aunque no cumpla ninguna de las expectativas.
no conocía el tema. ni a c.mayfield...

un abrazo.

M’agrada la veu d’en Curtis, i en especial en aquesta magnifica cançó, la tinc jo també penjada en el meu blog.
Es aquell tipus de música que sempre i trobo un moment per escoltar-la.
