Thread Name: Religious Train & Chariot Songs
Subject: RE: Religious Train & Chariot Songs
See thread 76910 for versions of "The Hell-Bound Train."
Hell Bound Train
(also see DT, but be careful, there are mistakes and citations are often wrong or incomplete.

Most of the common versions of train and chariot songs may be found by Lyrics and Knowlwdge Search.

This thread will become unmanageable if a large number of them were re-posted here. A simple link to the thread, which often contains multiple versions, is sufficient.

"This Train Is Bound for Glory", a Guthrie? version from the DT re-posted above, appeared in the 1920's and was sung by a number of gospel groups, mostly White. It seems to be a revision of the Black gospel song, "Same Train."
