There's a place I know where the train goes slow
Where the sinner can be washed in the blood of the lamb
There's a river by the trestle down by sinner's grove
Down where the willow and the dogwood grow

You can hear the whistle, you can hear the bell
From the halls of heaven to the gates of hell
And there's room for the forsaken if you're there on time
You'll be washed of all your sins and all of your crimes

If you're down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there where the train goes slow

There's a golden moon that shines up through the mist
And I know that your name can be on that list
There's no eye for an eye, there's no tooth for a tooth
I saw Judas Iscariot carrying John Wilkes Booth

They were down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there where the train goes slow

If you've lost all your hope, if you've lost all your faith
I know you will be cared for and I know you will be safe
And all of the shameful and all of the wheres
Even the soldier who pierced the heart of the Lord

Is down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there where the train goes slow

Well, I've never asked forgiveness, never said a prayer
I've never given of myself, never truly cared
And I've left the ones who loved me and I'm still raising Cain
I've taken the low road and if you've done the same

Meet me down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there where the train goes slow
