Get On Board, Little Children

Words & Music:

Traditional American



The gospel train's a-comin';


I hear it just at hand.

  G                 C

I hear the wheels a-rumblin'

    C       D7          G

And rollin' through the land.



G      C

Get on board, little children;


Get on board, little children.


Get on board, little children;

        C        D7     G

There's room for many a-more.


I hear that train a-comin';

She's comin' round the curve.

She's loosened all her steam and breaks

And strainin' ev'ry nerve.




The fare is cheap and all can go;

The rich and poor are there.

No second class aboard this train;

No difference in the fare.
