Salvation Train
Words by Woody Guthrie, Music by Jimmy LaFave

I’m a ridin’ on that salvation train
I’m a ridin’ on that salvation train
It’s that same old train that brung me to this world
And it’s a goin’ to carry me away.

Brother, you can’t ride but one
Brother, you can’t ride but one
Oh, you can’t ride but one down through Armagiddeon
Brother, you can’t ride but one.

Sister, you can’t ride two
Sister, you can’t ride two
If you tride to ride two you can’t sing Hallelooe
Sister, you can’t ride two.

You just can’t ride three
You can’t ride three
You can’t ride three and git down around Galilee
No, you can’t ride three.

Oh no, you can’t ride four
No, you can’t ride four
No you can’t ride no four and git over about Golden Shore
No, you can’t ride four.

I’m a ridin’ on that salvation train
I’m a ridin’ on that salvation train
It’s that same old train that brung me to this world
And it’s a goin’ to carry me away.
