Linda Ronstadt Life Is Like a Mountain Railway Lyrics


Life is like a mountain railroad
With an engineer that's brave
We must make the run successful
From the cradle to the grave

Chorus: Blessed Saviour thou wilt guide us
Till we reach that blissful shore
With the angels there to join us
In God's grace forevermore (2x to end)

Heed the curves and watch the tunnels
Never falter, never fail
Keep your hands upon the throttle
And your eye upon the rail

Chorus here

As you roll across the trestle
Spanning Jordan's swelling tide
You will reach the Union Depot
Into which your train will ride
There you'll meet the superintendent
God the father, God the son
With a happy joyous plaudit
Weary pilgrim, welcome home
