Get on Board, Little Children

The Gospel train's a-comin',

I hear it just at hand.

I hear the car wheels movin',

And rumblin' through the land.

Get on board little children,

Get on board little children,

Get on board little children,

For there's room for many a more.

The fare is cheap and all can go,

The rich and poor are there.

No second-class on board the train,

No difference in the fare.

Get on board little children,

Get on board little children,

Get on board little children,

For there's room for many a more.

Hambone has been " 'round the world and back again." You'll find his song on the next page.
