Life Is Like A Mountain Railroad
Authors Eliza R. Snow & M. E. Abbey, 19th Century 

[Verse 1]

 G                                       C               G
Life is like a mountain railway with an engineer that's brave
                                          A              D7
we must make this run successful from the cradle to the grave
          G                                     C            G
watch the curves, the fills, the tunnels never falter never fail
                                              D7       G
keep your hand upon the throttle and your eye upon the rail


[Chorus]

        C               G                                     D7
Blessed savior there to guide us till we reach that blissful shore
          G               C              G     D7      G    
where the angels wait to join us in thy praise for evermore


[Verse 2]

G                                           C                   G
You will roll up grades of trial,  you will cross the bridge of life
                                           A                 D7
see that Christ is your conductor on this lightning train of life
        G                                C           G
always mindful of obstruction,   do your duty never fail
                                              D7       G
keep your hand upon the throttle and your eye upon the rail


[Chorus]

       C               G                                     D7
Blessed savior there to guide us till we reach that blissful shore
          G               C              G     D7      G    
where the angels wait to join us in thy praise for evermore


[Verse 3]

 G                                       C                G                            
As you roll across the trestle spanning Jordan's swelling tide
                                    A                    D7
you will reach the Union Depot into which the train will ride
             G                               C               G
there you'll meet the Superintendent God the Father, God the Son
                                             D7       G
with a hand of joyous greeting weary pilgrim welcome home.


[Chorus]
            
       C               G                                     D7
Blessed savior there to guide us till we reach that blissful shore
          G               C              G     D7      G    
where the angels wait to join us in thy praise for evermore
