People Get Ready
Eva Cassidy Lyrics


People get ready
There's a train a-coming
You don't need no baggage
You just get on board
All you need is faith
To hear diesels humming
You don't need no ticket
You just thank the Lord
Yeah yeah yeah

People get ready
For the train to Jordan
Picking up passengers
From coast to coast
Faith is the key
Open the doors and board them
There's room for all
Among the loved and lost

Now there ain't no room
For the hopeless sinner
Whom would hurt all mankind
Just to save his own
Have pity on those
Whose chances are thinner
'Cause there's no hiding place
From the Kingdom's throne

Ohh people get ready
There's a train a-coming
You don't need no baggage
You just get on board
All you need is faith
To hear diesels a- humming
You don't need no ticket
You just thank the Lord
Yeah yeah yeah

I'm getting ready
I - I'm ready yeah yeah yeah
Oh I'm getting ready oh - oh
I'm ready yeah

Some lucky people stumbled into this supper club and were treated to one of the best voices ever.

@Paul Newell I would have loved to have just showed up and experienced this show!

Amen. Eva Cassidy, in my opinion, was the most beautiful, pure female voice of ALL-TIME. I recall a story when Eva was turned down for a recording contract with the Blue Note record label. Years later, when Eva was very ill, shortly before she passed, that head of Blue Note phoned her and apologized that he should have, indeed, signed her to a recording contract. Her response was something like "oh, that's ok". She held no hard feelings against him. Maybe, after all, it was a true blessing that she wasn't signed to that contract as record companies usually try to direct how they want the artist to sound. All new artists rarely get to make the record they want.

@I CY and she didn't even listen? Her loss.

Mott Bosco

@I CY It's not meant to be for her. Not now anyway. I wouldn't have liked Eva in my 20's or 30's but I can REALLY appreciate what she did while in my 50's.

Rose Cantilena

Yes, I was one of them...A voice only An Angel could have

Eva puts so much passion into every song she sings. If she sings about a train, you find yourself on that train. When she sings about fields of gold, you're walking through fields of gold. This can't be taught. It's a God given talent. And when it comes to the few people who have this talent, Eva Cassidy is far ahead of them all. RIP Eva.

Voice of a our angel you don't need no ticket

Mark Johnson

It may be something more than God-given talent. It may be voice of God speaking directly through Eva. Hard to explain it without something like that.
