                           "People Get Ready"
                           (Curtis Mayfield)

[Curtis Mayfield used an open F# tuning (low to high: F# A# C# F# A# F#);
 I've notated the breaks in both standard and open F# (capoed at the 7th
 fret) below.  -- AWR]

Intro (w/wordless vocal, 2X):

        Db      Bbm             Gb/Ab      Db
        /  /  /  /   /  /  /  /   /  /  /  /   /  /  /  /

Verse 1:

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

        F  -----------0---0-0---|---------1---0-------|
        Db ---------------------|-2---------0---------|

Verse 2:

        People get ready for the train to Jordan
        It's picking up passengers from coast to coast
        Faith is the key, open the doors and board 'em
        There's hope for all among those loved the most.

        F  -------1---------|-2-2---1---1-----|
        Db -1---------------|-1-1---1---------|

Verse 3:

          D             Bm  G/A                   D
        There ain't no room     for the hopeless sinner
                   D           Bm          G/A       D
        Who would hurt all mankind just to save his own
              D       Bm         G/A           D
        Have pity on those whose chances grow thinner
                   F#m         Em                G          D
        For there's no hiding place against the Kingdom's throne

[repeat verse 1 in D]:

        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'
        F#m            Em              [N.C.]
        Don't need no ticket, you just thank the Lord
