Chords: C, Am, G7
C 
The devil's train is long and black 
                     Am 
It rides on rails of tears 
     C 
It's headin' for destruction now 
       G7        C 
With a drunken engineer
 
C 
Oh see the greatness of the crowd 
                      Am 
That waits beside the track 
        C 
They're leaving on that devil's train 
          G7     C 
And never coming back 


*CHORUS*:
C
Oh Lord please stop that devil's train 
                 G7 
Before it is too late 
    C 
And teach them how to bow their heads 
            G7         C 
Before they seal their fate



C
The devil's train will take you to 
                     Am 
A land of groans and pain 
       C 
You'll spend your days in sorrow if 
                G7      C 
You ride that devil's train 

C
Oh listen to that whistle scream 
                     Am 
Like echoes from the blue 
    C 
The throttle's wide and spoutin' steam 
             G7     C 
She's on her way to doom 

*CHORUS*:
C
Oh Lord please stop that devil's train 
                 G7 
Before it is too late 
    C 
And teach them how to bow their heads 
            G7         C 
Before they seal their fate

C
The devil's train is long and black 
                  Am 
It's beautiful to see 
   C 
It offers you temptation but 
               G7  C 
It brings you mis-ery 
 

So come and ride that glorious train 
                   Am 
Where happiness is free 
     C 
It's on its way to heaven now 
          G7   C 
To spend eter-nity 

*CHORUS*:
C
Oh Lord please stop that devil's train 
                 G7 
Before it is too late 
    C 
And teach them how to bow their heads 
            G7         C 
Before they seal their fate
