Song lyrics
There's a long black train coming down the line
Feeding off the souls that are lost and crying
Rails of sin only evil remains
Watch out brother for that long black train

Look to the heavens you can look to the sky
You can find redemption staring back into your eyes
There is protection and there's peace the same
Burning your ticket for that long black train

Cause there's vic'try in the Lord I say
Vic'try in the Lord
Cling to the Father and his holy name
And don't go riding on that long black train

There's an engineer on that long black train
Making you wonder if the ride is worth the pain
He's just a waiting on your heart to say
Let me ride on that long black train

But you know there's vic'try in the Lord I say
Vic'try in the Lord
Cling to the Father and his holy name
And don't go riding on that long black train

Well I can hear the whistle from a mile away
It sounds so good but I must stay away
That train is a beauty making every body stare
But its only destination is the middle of nowhere

But you know there's vic'try in the Lord I say
Vic'try in the Lord
Cling to the Father and his holy name
And don't go riding on that long black train

I said Cling to the Father and his holy name
And don't go riding on that long black train
Yeah watch out brother for that long black train
That Devils a driving that long black train

I never thought I would hear that Josh was overplayed. He ain't overplayed like Chesney or McGraw.

The train is a metaphor for tempation. The people standing on the track are deciding whether or not to get on it.

I think the song "Long Black Train" is a wonderfull song for all of those christians out there and I appen to be on. At first I didnt think anything of the song then when i heard it I turned to my mom and said wow that song is good. I may only be 14 years old but I have always wanted to become a country singer and when Josh Turner came along I said to my self wow I can sing almost just like him. I just want to thank god for this wonderful song and i dont care what anyone says this is one of the greatest songs ever, and i know that no one will ever replace johnny cash or merel haggard but Josh Turner is right there beside them. O and no matter what anyone says country is still #1 in my book.

I think that everyone is entitled to their opinion but I feel that long black train has such meaning and it is a ver powerful song. The first time I heard this song I said to my sister how old is this song, but I didn't take the time to lsten to the song and I personaly thought it was a very annoying song; and I thought it was just a song about some guy ranting and raving about a long, black, train. But I listened to the song again and got the full meaning of the song. I think it is an amazing song. I also thong Josh Turner is hot and he has a very sexy, deep voice.
