Long Black Train
Capo 3  Key-Bb 

G 
There's a long black train, comin down the line, 
                              Em       G 
Feeding off the souls that are lost and cryin' 
G 
Rails of sin only evil remains, 
                           D           G 
Watch out brother for that long black train, 


G 
Look to the heavens you can look to the sky, 
                                Em             G 
You can find redemption staring back into your eyes, 
G 
There is protection and there's peace the same, 
                            D           G 
Burning your ticket for that long black train, 


(chorus) 
G 
Cause there's victory in the Lord I say, 
               D 
Victory in the Lord, 
Em            G             C    G 
Cling to the father and his holy name, 
   Em       G             D           G 
And don't go ridin on that long black train, 


G 
There's an engine there on that long black train, 
                          Em                G 
Making you wonder if your ride is worth the pain, 
G 
He's just a waitin' on your heart to say, 
                    D           G 
Let me ride on that long black train 

(chorus) 

G 
Well I can hear the whistle from a mile away, 
                       Em        G 
It sounds so good but I must stay away, 
G 
That train is a beauty makin everybody stare, 
                                 D         G 
But its only destination is the middle of nowhere, 

(chorus) 
Em            G             C    G 
Cling to the Father and his holy name, 
   Em        G             D          G 
And don't go ridin on that long black train, 
    Em        G                D           G 
Yea watch out brother for that long black train, 
    Em        G           D         
That devil's drivin' that long black train,
