This Train Ain't Bound for Glory Anymore

©2012, 2013 unrecorded


I heard Woody Guthrie sing a song for everyone

this land was made for you and me

he sang about a better world that was gonna come

and pastures of plenty always free


Now a picture from life's other side is all I ever see

hard travelin is how it's gonna be

the gamblin man's still rich, the workin folks all poor

and this train ain't bound for glory anymore

this train ain't bound for glory anymore


The do-re-mi don't trickle down like they said it would

Wall Street keeps on gettin more and more

so many little homes for sale in our neighborhood

this train ain't bound for glory anymore


We been sitckin to the union, stickin to our guns

but mister, we've been busted one by one

and no bugle call for peace, just another dirty little war

this train ain't bound for glory anymore

this train ain't bound for glory anymore


I packed my bags to look for work somewhere down the road

kissed my wife at the railroad station door

I heard the blind conductor call, "Everybody get on board

this train ain't bound for glory anymore."

this train ain't bound for glory anymore

and this land was made for you and me
