Thursday Theme Song - People Get Ready

People Get Ready
Lyrics: Curtis Mayfield

People get ready, there's a train a comin'
You don't need no baggage, you just get on board
All you need is faith to hear the diesels hummin'
Don't need no ticket, you just thank the Lord

So people get ready, there's a train a comin'


You don't need no baggage, you just get on board


All you need is faith to hear the diesels hummin'


Don't need no ticket, you just thank the Lord



Footnote: Curtis Mayfield in a poignant performance from Night Music. The band includes Taylor Dane (female vocal), Hiram Bullock (guitarist), David Lindley (electric bass guitar), David Sanborn (sax), Omar Hakkim (drums), Don Alias (percussionist) and Tom Barney (bass).



Footnote: Many artists have covered People Get Ready. Most recently Jeff Beck. Here Beck is joined onstage by Rod Stewart, who also covered this Mayfield standard.

Super choice for TTT, Doug. And I like your photos, especially the second one - I could live there, if it had an elevator, LOL.
