lyrics

Pilgrim Train
(c) 2013 Pamela Cardullo Ortiz


I am a pilgrim
Am a pilgrim
Gonna climb on board
Climb on board
And ride that train
Ride that train
To see my Lord
To see my Lord
Where he sets a table
Sets a table
And he lays a feast
Lays the feast
And there the mighty
There the mighty
Gonna serve the least.
Serve the least


CHORUS:

Bend and cut
One for my woman
Bend and cut
One for my Lord
Bend and cut
One to pay the credit
Bend and cut
At the factory store
Bend and cut
One for the Big House
Bend and cut
And the next again
Bend and cut
One to buy my ticket
Bend and cut
On the Pilgrim Train

Until that day
Until that day
When I board that train
Board that train
You will find me
You will find me
Cutting cane
Cutting cane
I use my back
I use my back
And the work of my hands
Of my hands
To glean a promise
Glean a promise
Of the Promised Land.
Of the Promised Land.
