Lyrics:

Jesus Rides This Freight-train With Me

Intro(semi-spoken):
I used to wear the cloth of black
My collar, it was white
I took the vows and praised my Lord
My world was once so bright

Verse 1:
This world of flesh can bring you down
And then they run you out of town
Hounded by cries of blasphemy;
Bottle and Bible by my side
I know the Good Lord will provide
Coz Jesus rides this freight-train with me

Verse 2:
Sallie-Ann still haunts my dreams at night
In my arms until the mornin' light
Always, in my heart she'll be;
In this boxcar all alone
I'm maybe sleepin', maybe stoned
But Jesus rides this freight-train
Jesus rides this freight-train
Jesus rides this freight-train with me

Bridge:
The world outside goes flashin'n by
I say my prayers to the mornin' sky
Prayin' to my Lord coz I'm full of sin
Open up them Pearly Gates Peter, won'tcha let me in!

Verse 3:
Somewhere cross the Fitzroy up ahead
Makin' plans while I make up my bed
Bringin' God's love into the Kimberley
Good News is meant for every man
Travellin' through, I do what I can
Coz Jesus rides this freight-train
Jesus rides this freight-train
Jesus rides this freight-train with me

Verse 4:
Jesus rides this freight-train with me
Cows, hoboes, and goodness knows
We ride these rails for free;
To places far away
I never been somewhere I wanna stay
Coz Jesus rides this freight-train
Jesus rides this freight-train
Jesus rides this freight-train with me
And Jesus rides this freight-train
Jesus rides this freight-train
Jesus rides this freight-train with me
