"People Get Ready" Lyrics
( Perfect Train Song ....)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Lyrics to People Get Ready :
People get ready, there's a train comin'
You don't need no baggage, you just get on board
All you need is faith to hear the diesels hummin'
You don't need no ticket you just thank the lord

People get ready, there's a train to Jordan
Picking up passengers coast to coast
Faith is the key, open the doors and board them
There's hope for all among those loved the most
There ain't no room for the hopeless sinner whom would hurt all mankind
Just to save his own
Have pity on those whose chances grow thinner
For there is no hiding place against the kingdoms throne

People get ready there's a train comin'
You don't need no baggage, just get on board
All you need is faith to hear the diesels hummin'
You don't need no ticket, just thank the lord.....

They started lining up and going in at 8 too...it is something freezing cold and people are there 5 hours before it starts so they can be there.

How awesome is that. People want to be involved so much with the passing of the torch.

enigma4ever said...

well Annette...let's hope that passing the Torch keeps them warm..

;-)

( Blizzarding here...snow aplenty..still below 20..and negative with windchill...plenty cold...I think DC is supposed to rise to 20's today ?...for their sake I hope so....I am still confused if CSPAN will carry the event or just HBO....)

Cart said...

enigma, it's been a long train ride. I need to report being surprised and gratified at the level of anticipation and excitement here, downunder. I thought I would see simple curiosity, but the inauguration is going to bring this country to a stand still.

Annette said...

I am not sure about CSPAN..I know that HBO is supposed to have exclusive..but it is on the web at HBO.com too.

So far it is wonderful... of course I may run out of tissue... but it will be worth it.

Love the limo plates & thanks for the rave review.
The incense & candles burn, the positive affirmation in in the air. It's like the bush regime was a dark cloud of negativity hanging over & choking us all. We can breathe again.


Really people can barely contain themselves with the regime change- no offense to Obama, but they are equally esctatic to be getting rid of bush!

Finally! Someone with a clue to participate in a MLK honors ceremony. The man dedicated his life for the cause, let's have someone who respects those values doing the honors.

enigma4ever said...

yeah...MLK finally HONORED....the way it should be...
I work all day tomorrow and tomorrow eve..darn...BUT I will do it while honoring MLK...

Gryphen said...

It's really going to happen Enigma!

The bad people are leaving and Obama is going to be our next President!

To have hoped for so long, and to know it is so close is almost too excruciating to bear. I guess on Tuesday I will finally be able to exhale fully.

enigma4ever said...

you are so right...you will be able to Breath again fully...and deep breath..and sleep...not waking up to see what the damn King has fucked up .....we are almost there...can you feel it ???it's electric in the air...
change.....

REAL honest Change....its a coming...
