People Get Ready

Original and similar lyrics
(Mayfield) People get ready, there's a train a-coming. You don't need no baggage, you just get on board. All you need is faith to hear those diesels humming. You 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 key, open up the doors and board them. There's hope for all among the loved the most. But there ain't no room for the hopeless sinner who would hurt all mankind to save his own. Have pity on those whose choices grow thinner. There's no hiding place from the kingdom's throne. People get ready, there's a train a-coming. You don't need no baggage, you just get on board. All you need is faith to hear those diesels humming. You don't need no ticket, you just thank the Lord, thank the Lord.

Go Tell It On The Mountain

VANESSA WILLIAMS "Intro-Lude"
Mary had a baby Mary had a baby Mary had a baby People, keep a comin' and the train done gone Laid him in a manger Laid him in a manger Laid him in a manger, oh lord People, keep a comin' and the train done gone Shepherds came to see him Shepherds came to see him Shepherds came to see him, oh lord People, keep a comin' and the train done gone Named him King Jesus Named him King Jesus Named him King Jesus, oh lord People, keep a comin' and the train done gone When I was a seeker I sought both night and day And I asked the lord to help me and he showed me the way CHORUS: Oh, Go tell it on the mountain over the hills and everywhere Go tell it on the mountain that Jesus Christ is born He made me a watchman, upon the city wall and if I am a Christian I am the least of all, yeahyeah Go tell it on the mountain over the hills and everywhere Go tell it on the mountain that Jesus Christ is born CHORUS (4x)

Chemistry Class

ELVIS COSTELLO "Armed Forces"
She throws back her hair [hands] and she shows you her mouth The breath that I waste trying to ruin your life Beauty's on a budget but you take it on the chin 'Cause you have to do your duty taking orders from the kingpin You've got a chemistry class I want a piece of your mind You don't know what you started when you mixed it up with mine Are you ready for the final solution? Oh. Oh. [They] chopped you up in butcher's school Threw you out of the academy of garbage You'll be a joker all your life A student at the comedy college People pleasing people pleasing people like you You've been around so long but you still don't know what to do (Chorus) Sparks are flying from electrical pylons Snakes and ladders running up and down her nylons Ready to experiment, you're ready to be burned If it wasn't for some accidents then some would never ever learn (Chorus)

Glory

KAMELOT "The Fourth Legacy"
sworn by the crown I lead a crusade fight for belief to be one out in the field fearless and cold building the road to my Calvary strong is my steel dark is my mind carmine the ground that I tread faith in my godkeeps me alive but when does my faith turn to doubt silently watching the rain carving the earth on my grave lord you know that I prayed one for the glory and one for the souls that I've slain how will I know how could I tell where would I find some serenity sowing the seed unwounded I bleed lord won't you show me the way christ is the cross that I bear god is the will of my war faint are the voices I hear whispers of glory... christ is the cry of despair cursing the day I was born this is the faith that we share left with the glory and suffering of souls that we've torn

Empty Hands

JOHN COUGAR MELLENCAMP "Lonesome Jubilee"
In the shadows of the smokestacks Through the black snow that lay on the land Walked home one winter morning With my life's savings in my hand Maryanne, she's fixin' up some breakfast Got the lights on, on the Christmas tree Sittin' there lookin' up at an angel With something dyin' inside of me Grew up with great expectations Heard the promise and I knew the plan They say people get what they deserve But Lord, sometimes it's much worse than that Maryanne she's takin' in some laundry I got a part-time job at a drive-in stand Oh Lord, what did I do To deserve these empty hands Across the cities, across this land Through the valleys, and across the sand To many people standin' in line Too many people with nothin' planned There's too many people with empty hands Now Maryanne's been cryin' Lord knows I love her the best I can When my pride is bruised and broken She slips her hand into my empty hands Without hope, without love, you've got nothing but pain Just makes a man not give a damn That's no way for us to live We've got to fill these empty hands

Don't Say What You Won't Do

ANTHONY HAMILTON "Southern Comfort"
If you see me (if you see me walkin') walking down the street And I start to cry Don't (Don't walk on) walk on by, don't (don't walk) walk on by Why don't you look me in my eyes? look me in my eye! Uh oh! (I can't hold that man's hand cause he from another land) Hey uh! (I can't love nobody's baby cause I wanna be a man) Oh oh oh! (I can't fall down on my knees and ask for forgiveness and help my fellow man - be a stronger man) Oh oh oh! (White people, black people, jews, muslims: YOU CAN, YOU CAN) Ran with the rest of them, hung with the best of them soldiers Did a lot of thinking on what most of them done told us They say they can never ever give up their lives for a stranger man But oh when it comes down to it, you don't know what's in the plan. (If you should see me crying) Reach out and grab my tear (crawling) (If you should see me dying) Don't you leave me standing here (if I'm dying) (If you should hear me) SINGING the words of a trouble man (Don't walk) Don't walk by me like you don't understand Oh! (Don't say what you won't do) Don't say what you won't do When it all falls down and he's looking at you! (Don't say what you won't do) Don't say, don't say! (Don't say what you won't do) Now you've got your life all planned out, Walking by people looking for hand-outs So far up on your high horse That you can't even hear that poor lawd SCREAMING (Stop please, help me, on my knees) For these few bucks that you give to me I can help save you and your family (Oh Oh) Don't act like you don't see me standing here (Oh Oh) With all my tears and all my fears (Oh Hoooh!) (Oh Oh) You can't even look in my eye, my eye, my my! Don't pass me by, don't pass me by! Heeey! Oooh! (Don't say what you won't do) Don't say, you don't mean it, no! (Don't say what you won't do) You can never tell the way that your life's gonna go! (Don't say what you won't do) Don't say, don't say what you won't do! (Don't say what you won't do) Don't tell me that you can't love me (Don't say what you won't do) I'm standing here with tears! (Don't say what you won't do) Cause I ran with the rest of them, hung with the best of them (Don't say what you won't do) And they learned to love (Oh Oh) Ehehehehe-Hehehey! (Oh Oh) Lord lord lord lord lord! Don't say what you won't do Because you never know what's coming right up to you Could be your very last moment Gon' cry till my eyes are blue Don't say, Don't say, Dooon't say
