    Lyrics

    There's a long black train coming down the line
    Feeding off the souls that are lost and crying
    Rails of sin only evil remains
    Watch out brother for that long black train

    Look to the heavens you can look to the sky
    You can find redemption staring back into your eyes
    There is protection and there's peace the same
    Burning your ticket for that long black train

    Cause there's vic'try in the Lord I say
    Vic'try in the Lord
    Cling to the Father and his holy name
    And don't go riding on that long black train

    There's an engineer on that long black train
    Making you wonder if the ride is worth the pain
    He's just a waiting on your heart to say
    Let me ride on that long black train

    But you know there's vic'try in the Lord I say
    Vic'try in the Lord
    Cling to the Father and his holy name
    And don't go riding on that long black train

    Well I can hear the whistle from a mile away
    It sounds so good but I must stay away
    That train is a beauty making every body stare
    But its only destination is the middle of nowhere

    But you know there's vic'try in the Lord I say
    Vic'try in the Lord
    Cling to the Father and his holy name
    And don't go riding on that long black train

    I said Cling to the Father and his holy name
    And don't go riding on that long black train
    Yeah watch out brother for that long black train
    That Devils a driving that long black train

      I never thought I would hear that Josh was overplayed. He ain't overplayed like Chesney or McGraw.

      The train is a metaphor for tempation. The people standing on the track are deciding whether or not to get on it.

      My son who just turned 4 in Dec. loves this song and has since it first came out. He knows all the words to it, and sings it with out it even playing.
      It is so cute.

      i don't like the song at all really..it's way overplayed on cmt and it gets so annoying after a while...the message is good and stuff..but in my opinion the song itself is pretty bad...no offense to everyone who likes josh or anything..

      I think the song "Long Black Train" is a wonderfull song for all of those christians out there and I appen to be on. At first I didnt think anything of the song then when i heard it I turned to my mom and said wow that song is good. I may only be 14 years old but I have always wanted to become a country singer and when Josh Turner came along I said to my self wow I can sing almost just like him. I just want to thank god for this wonderful song and i dont care what anyone says this is one of the greatest songs ever, and i know that no one will ever replace johnny cash or merel haggard but Josh Turner is right there beside them. O and no matter what anyone says country is still #1 in my book.
