Zion Train Lyrics

Zion train is coming our way;
The Zion train is coming our way;
Oh, people, get on board! (you better get on board!)
Thank the Lord (praise Fari) -
I gotta catch a train, 'cause there is no other station;
Then you going in the same direction...

    new York train means its final destination is new York.
    Zion train???
    Zion definitely means heaven.
    Because according to Rastafarian beliefs, Emperor haille Selassie 1 was Jesus Christ, who ascended to heaven(zion).

    It's Marley's interpretation of the R & B classic "People Get Ready". It's about atoning for your sins and transgressions and getting ready to meet Jah and the "train to glory/heaven/everlasting life". It's a common idiom in religions. God is going to bring a Holy Train to pick up all his/her people and take them away from this madness.
