"People Get Ready" as written by and Curtis Mayfield....
People get ready
There's a train a-comin'
You don't need no baggage
Just get on board
All you need is faith
To hear the diesel hummin'
You don't need no ticket
Just thank the Lord

People get ready
For the train to Jordan
It's pickin' up passengers
From coast to coast
Faith is the key
Open the doors and board on
There's room for all
Amongst who loves the most

There ain't no room
For the hopeless sinner
Who'd hurt all man kind
Just to save his own
Pitied are those
Whose chances grow thinner
There's no hiding place
In the kingdom's throne

People get ready
There's a train a-comin'
You don't need no baggage
Just get on board
All you need is faith
To hear the diesel hummin'
You don't need no ticket
Just thank the Lord
