​I Wish My Mother Was on That Train

This song is by Blind Joe Taggart and appears on the compilation Lonesome Whistle: An Anthology of American Railroad Song (2012).

Lord, I wonder, will my Mother be on that train?
Wonder will my Mother be on that train?
The train I'm a-talkin' about, she's a-moving through the land
Good Lord, I wonder, will my Mother be on that train?

Some of us have mothers, Lord, they left us here below
They gone to live with Jesus, and they rest forever more
Expect to meet her there in the home beyond the sky
Good Lord, I wonder, will my Mother be on that train?
I wonder, will my Mother be on that train?
The train I'm a-talkin' about, she's a-moving through the land
Oh Lord, I wonder, will my Mother be on that train?

Oh Christians, you better be ready, a-standin' in one van
For the Gospel Train is coming, she's a-moving through the land
Make her station blow, Lord, you better be ready to go
Good Lord, I wonder, will my Mother be on that train?
Wonder will my Mother be on that train?
The train I'm a-talkin' about, she's a-moving through the land
My Lord, I wonder, will my Mother be on that train?

Oh sinner, you stand a-tremblin', and you don't know what to do
This train, she runs to Glory, she's moving through the land
Jesus is the man, he will always stop that train
My Lord, I wonder, will my Mother be on that train?
Wonder will my Mother be on that train?
The train I'm a-talkin' about, she's a-moving through the land
Good Lord, I wonder, will my Mother be on that train?

Oh sinner, your train is coming, I know she going to slack
I know her by her rumbling, for she's always draped in black
I'll bid you fare-you-well, for you made your bed in hell
Oh Lord, I wonder, will my Mother be on that train?
Wonder will my Mother be on that train?
The train I'm a-talkin' about, she's a-moving through the land
Good Lord, I wonder, will my Mother be on that train?
Good Lord, I wonder, will my Mother be on that train?
