                  Slow train, cominí down that freedom track
                  Slow train, cominí on down that freedom track
                  Donít need money in your sack, fancy suit on your back
                  Ride the slow train

                  Slow train, all Godís children ride for free
                  Slow train, Godís children get to ride for free
                  Donít need no stain glass recipe or a college phd
                  Ride the slow train

                  Slow train, hop on up while we still can
                  Slow train, best hop on board while we still can
                  Just call on the name of a sinner's only friend
                  Ride the slow train (come on an' ride now, y'all)

                  Slow train, fire aní smoke cominí out the stack
                  Oh, slow train, fire aní smoke comin' out that stack
                  Headiní down the history track, ainít never cominí back
                  Climb on the slow train

                  Slow train, cominí down that freedom track
                  Oh, slow train, cominí on down that freedom track
                  Donít need no bread in your sack, fancy suit on your back
                  Ride the slow train

                  Yeah, donít need no degree, theology or fame
                  Ride the slow train (slow train) *


* Concept inspired by American artist and songwriter Bob Dylan.
