​Death Rides A Midnight Train

This song is by Poverty Branch.

Death rides a midnight train
And it burns coal both night and day
We're all born with tickets in our hands
Just like cattle we've all got our brand
You best leave your things
Right where they are
Because on this iron horse
There ain't no baggage car
Some will go north
Some will go south
So will go straight to hell
On account of their mouth

And this could be the day
This could be the day
And this could be the day
That we ride out on that train

Death rides a midnight train
And it's engineer goes by a famous name
If somethings wrong
You better make it right
'Cause what's done in the dark
Will be brought to the light
And when you sing
Sing like you don't know sorrow
And when you dance
Dance like there's no tomorrow
Love your enemies
Be good to your friends
Cause there's no way of knowing
When you'll meet your end

And this could be the day
This could be the day
And this could be the day
That we ride out on that train

Well death rides a midnight train
And it don't stop for sleep nor rain
Some will go soon
Some will go late
But one things for sure
We've all got our date

And this could be the day
This could be the day
And this could be the day
That we ride out on that train
Yeah

Do you know where your going?
Do you know where your going?
Do you know where your going?
'Cause I know where I am going
Lets head down glory road
I'm gonna head down glory road
Lets go
Lets head down glory road
Lets head down glory road
Lets go

Cause this could be the day
And this could be the day
And this could be the day
That we ride out on that train
