move along train lyrics – levon helm

move along train

you’ve got to move along train
(you’ve got a heavy load)
you’ve got to move along train
(you’ve got a heavy load)
you’ve got to move along train
(you’ve got a heavy load)
you know that my lord’s coming and-a
he won’t be long.
he’s gonna save me and carry me home.

the gospel train is coming
you know it’s coming around the curve
and i can hear the whistle blowing
you know she’s straining every nerve

you’ve got to move along train
(you’ve got a heavy load)
you’ve got to move along train
(you’ve got a heavy load)
you’ve got to move along train
(you’ve got a heavy load)
a-a-a my lord’s coming and-a
he won’t be long.
he’s gonna save me and carry me home.

you better tell that barroom laday
she better get her business right
because the gospel train is coming
you know it may be here tonight

you’ve got to move along train
(you’ve got a heavy load)
you’ve got to move along train
(you’ve got a heavy load)
you’ve got to move along train
(you’ve got a heavy load)
you know that my lord’s coming and-a
he won’t be long.
he’s gonna save me and carry me home.
he’s gonna save me and carry me home.
he’s gonna save me and carry me home.
