Lyrics
All aboard, get on board
All aboard, get on board

There's a train comin' somewhere down the track
The people that ain't ready, better step on back
This rain has been runnin' since the time began
It's runnin' on the love of your fellowman

All aboard, get on board
All aboard, get on board

So people get ready, there's a train a-coming
You don't need no ticket, you just get on board
All you need is faith to hear the diesel's hummin'
You don't need no ticket, you just thank the Lord

I believe, I truly believe
That one day the world will be full of love
Yes, I believe, yes, I believe
Yes, I believe, yes, I believe
I believe
