Lyrics

Oh, the gospel train is comin’
Don’t you wanna go?
Gospel train is comin’,
Don’t you wanna go?
Oh, the gospel train is comin’,
Don’t you wanna go?
Oh, yes, I wanna go

It’s comin’ round the mountain,
Don’t you wanna go?
It’s comin’ round the mountain,
Don’t you wanna go?
She’s comin’ round the mountain,
Don’t you wanna go?
Oh, yes, I wanna go

She’s comin’ heavy loaded,
Don’t you wanna go?
Comin’ heavy loaded,
Don’t you wanna go?
Comin’ heavy loaded,
Don’t you wanna go?
Oh, yes, I wanna go

She’s loaded with bright angels,
Don’t you wanna go?
Loaded with bright angels,
Don’t you wanna go?
She’s loaded with bright angels,
Don’t you wanna go?
Oh, yes, I wanna go

Oh, tell me who is the captain,
Don’t you wanna go?
Tell me who’s the captain,
Don’t you wanna go?
Oh, tell me who’s the captain,
Don’t you wanna go?
Oh, yes, I wanna go

King Jesus is the captain,
Don’t you wanna go?
King Jesus is the captain,
Don’t you wanna go?
Oh, Jesus is the captain,
Don’t you wanna go?
Oh, yes, I wanna go

He fought out many a battle,
Don’t you wanna go?
He fought out many a battle,
Don’t you wanna go?
Oh, he fought out many a battle,
Don’t you wanna go?
Oh, yes, I wanna go
