People Get Ready

People Get Ready
 (Curtis Mayfield)

 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
