When the Golden Train Comes Down

(Bob Nolan)

 

Sing along with the Sons of the Pioneers

 

There’s a Jubilee up in the sky,

When the Golden Train comes down.

With an invitation for you and I,

When the Golden Train comes down.

I’m gonna take tickets at the Golden Gate,

Gonna dance with Peter, make the angels wait,

And just to be mean, I'm gonna be late

When the Golden Train comes down.

 

“All aboard!  All aboard!

“All aboard!  All aboard!

Gonna ring the bell,

Gonna bid farewell

When the Golden Train comes down.”

 

She’ll be here soon and she’ll be on time,

When the Golden Train comes down.

With the Heav’nly crew all looking fine,

When the Golden Train comes down.

So, turn on the steam and let ‘er ride and ride,

Make the Devil throw coal on the old coal slide

If he don’t work hard, I'm gonna tan his hide

When the Golden Train comes down.

 

“All aboard!  All aboard!

“All aboard!  All aboard!

Gonna ring the bell,

Gonna bid farewell

When the Golden Train comes down.”

 

What a Heav’nly trip that’s gonna be,

When the Golden Train comes down.

With the angels serving pie and tea

When the Golden Train comes down.

You’re gonna see Gabriel, as sure as you’re born,

A-sittin’ on the smokestack, blowin’ his horn.

He can stand up if it gets too warm

When the Golden Train comes down.

 

“All aboard!  All aboard!

“All aboard!  All aboard!

Gonna ring the bell,

Gonna bid farewell

When the Golden Train comes down.”
