PEOPLE GET READY   by Curtis Mayfield    from an arrangement by Val Regan

 

Basses and tenors:

Dum dum dum dum – dum dum, doo doot doo doot

Dum dum dum dum – dum dum dum, doo doot doot (x2)

 

(Then repeat, while Sopranos and altos sing verses 1 and 2)

 

(V1) People get ready, there’s a train comin’

         Don’t need no baggage, you just climb on board

         Faith’s all you need to keep those diesels hummin’

         And you don’t need no ticket, you just thank the lord

 

(Chorus: Sops, Altos and Tenors, while Basses continue rhythm)  

  

    All aboard, get on board  (X4)

 

(V2) People get ready for the train to Jordan

         Picking up passengers, coast to coast

         Faith is the key, it opens doors and borders

         And there’s hope for all among this loving host

 

(Chorus)    All aboard, get on board (x4)

 

(V3) Basses sing verse, while others repeat chorus

 

         People get ready, there’s a train comin’

         Don’t need no baggage, you just climb on board

         Faith’s all you need to keep those diesels hummin’

         And you don’t need no ticket, you just thank the lord

 

(Final chorus) )    All aboard, get on board (x4)
