           Eb                     Ab          Eb   
 There's a place I know where the train goes slow
                                       Ab            Bb7 
 Where the sinner can be washed in the blood of the lamb
           Eb                        G           Cm  
 There's a river by the trestle down by Sinner's Grove
                Eb             G       Cm
 Down where the willow and the dogwood grow  


 (Eb)                      Ab                Eb   
 You can hear the whistle, you can hear the bell
                                 Ab       Bb7
 From the halls of heaven to the gates of hell
             Ab              Eb              G        Cm
 And there's room for the forsaken if you're there on time
   Ab                        Eb         G          Cm                 
 You'll be washed of all your sins and all of your crimes

|Ab                Eb
|Down there by the train
|Down there by the train
|Down there by the train
|Down there by the train
|Eb                          Bb   Eb   
|Down there where the train goes slow

 There's a golden moon that shines up through the mist   
 And I know that your name can be on that list      
 There's no eye for an eye, there's no tooth for a tooth
 I saw Judas Iscariot carrying John Wilkes Booth   
 He was...


 If you've lost all your hope, if you've lost all your faith
 I know you can be cared for and I know you can be safe
 And all the shamefuls and all of the whores
 And even the soldier who pierced the side of the Lord


 Well, I've never asked forgiveness and I've never said a prayer
 Never given of myself, never truly cared
 I've left the ones who loved me and I'm still raising Cain
 I've taken the low road and if you've done the same
 Meet me...

 {chorus (twice)}
