A few lines from "Takin' the Train to Heaven":


"Heaven's train has come 'a callin'

The conductor tells me "time to go"

I hadn't seen it comin'

I wish that I'd 'a known

Soft smoke is billowin' billowin' up

The train whistles a fluted sound

And up eternity's track we'll go

Leavin' this earthly ground

I'd like to have known my passage was booked

The fare paid...my departure planned

'Cause I was just as surprised as you  Alt. Verse:  For I was still battling courageously

When from life-to-death I spanned

So here I stand on the departure docks

And into eternity I'll go

But I'll leave part of my heart with you..."
