Lyrics

I’m goin’ home on the morning train
Well I’m goin’ home on the morning train
I’m goin’ home on the morning train
If you don’t see me you can hear me singing
All of my sins been taken away, taken away

Sister Mary wore three lengths of chain
Sister Mary she wore three lengths of chain
Sister Mary she wore three lengths of chain
Every length was Jesus’ name
All of my sins been taken away, taken away

The tallest tree in paradise
Tallest tree in paradise
Tallest tree in paradise
The Christians call it the tree of life,
All of my sins been taken away, taken away

Jordan deep, and Jordan wide
Jordan deep, and Jordan wide
Jordan deep, and Jordan wide
Chill my body but not my soul
All of my sins been taken away, taken away
