The gospel-influenced track was written and composed by Curtis Mayfield, who was displaying a growing sense of social and political awareness in his writing. Mayfield said,

That was taken from my church or from the upbringing of messages from the church. Like there's no hiding place and get on board, and images of that sort. I must have been in a very deep mood of that type of religious inspiration when I wrote that song.

"People Get Ready" is in a long tradition of Black American freedom songs that use train imagery, such as "Wade in the Water", "The Gospel Train", and "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot". The idea comes from the spiritualist idea that once one dies the soul goes in a journey to the afterlife.

People Get Ready Song Lyrics


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

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.

There ain&#;t no room for the hopeless sinner

Who would hurt all mankind just to save his own

Have pity on those whose chances grow thinner

For there&#;s no hiding place against the Kingdom&#;s throne

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

Curtis Mayfield Lyrics

"People Get Ready"

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'
You don't need no ticket
You just thank the Lord

So people get ready
There'a a train to Jordan
Picking up passengers
Coast to coast
Faith is the key
Open the doors and board them
There's hope for all
Among those loved the most

There ain't no room
For the hopeless sinner
Who would hurt all mankind
Just to save his own
Have pity on those whose
Chances grow thinner
There's no hiding place
Against the Kingdom's throne

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
