LYRIC

All Night Long

Well, I never seen the light since I been born, all night long
You know people keep a-comin’ but the train done gone, all night long
People keep a-comin’ but the train done gone, all night long
Tell me do, Lord, deliver for me

Yeah, I never seen the light since I been born, all night long
People keep a-comin’ but the train done gone, all night long
People keep a-comin’ but the train done gone, all night long
Tell me do, Lord, deliver for me

Yeah ain’t but a one train on this track, all night long
Straight up to heaven, straight right back, all night long
Straight up to heaven, straight right back, all night long
Tell me do, Lord, deliver for me

Well, I never seen the light since I been born, all night long
People keep a-comin’ but the train done gone, all night long
People keep a-comin’ but the train done gone, all night long
Tell me do, Lord, deliver for me

Sixty six seven gonna sing my song, all night long
Gospel choir gonna sing my song, all night long
All you boys gonna play my song, all night long
Tell me do, Lord, deliver for me

Well, I never seen the light since I’ve been born, all night long
You know people keep a-comin’ but the train done gone, all night long
People keep a-comin’ but the train done gone, all night long
Tell me do, Lord, deliver for me

Well, I never seen the light since I’ve been born, all night long
You know people keep a-comin’ but the train done gone, all night long
People keep a-comin’ but the train done gone, all night long
Tell me do, Lord, deliver for me
Tell me do, Lord, deliver for me
Tell me do, Lord, deliver for me
