Somewhere Over the Rainbow

People Get Ready

When you play like this, who needs a singer?

Another version of this great song you’ve probably never heard. Great video, too.

Curtis Mayfield wrote this song and lyrics.

People get ready
Theres 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
Theres room for all
Among the loved the most

There aint 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 theres no hiding place
From the king on his 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

I’m getting ready
I’m getting ready
This time I’m ready
This time I’m ready
