Patsy Cline - Life's Railway To Heaven Lyrics

Life is like a mountain railroad
With an engineer that's brave
We must make the run successful
From the cradle to the grave

Watch the curves, the fills, and tunnels
Never falter, never fail
Keep your hand upon the throttle
And your eyes upon the rail

Blessed savior, thou will guide us
Till we reach that blissful shore
Where the angels wait to join us
In that great forevermore

Blessed savior, thou will guide us
Till we reach that blissful shore
Where the angels wait to join us
In that great forevermore

    I can still hear my Mom singing this when I was small.  It was one of her Dad's favorites.  He was gone before I was born.  Mom had such a beautiful voice.

  27. Ramsey propteries


  28. Peter Brewster

    Everyone who ever heard you sing loved you Patsy.
    What a great person & singer you were. Thanks

  29. Melodias Y Recuerdos

    Haunting and beautiful version. "REAL" Country And Western Music the way it was PROUDLY done in the 1950's to the early 1970's. The so called Country(TRASH) Music being PUSHED today can't be compared to the treasures of yesteryear like this song.

    Kevin Kendall

    Melodias Y Recuerdos Pushed is the perfect word

  30. whitey g

    Going to stop by Patsy's grave this summer and play this song for her.

  31. Tommie T

    Best I can remember, the lady at the FBO in Dyersburg tried to get her to wait on takeoff.

  32. Patsy Marie

    Reading a biography on Patsy that I have previously read, in this book it says Patsy's Father's favorite song to sing, (he had an amazing voice, all the Hensley's did), was this song. I find it cute how Patsy did this song just knowing it was her dad's fav song, even though her father was a dead beat and she disliked him.

  33. へー

    listen, and listen. anytime you want.

  34. Gloria Day

    Follow your dreams, keep real & be guided by God's laws.

  35. Keith Dennis

    Nobody sings this song better !!!!!!!! Great version !!!!!!

  36. Rita Fellin

    John Harris

    +desirae hinkle

    Harrison Stuart

  44. Richard Powell

    Wow So soulful and true

  45. Shirley Evans

    The best of the best, song and singer.  Such a great gospel song and to have Patsy singing it just adds to the inspiration.

  46. Aaronn Electronic GmbH

    Traumhafte Stimme und eine tolle Frau,die leider viel zu früh sterben mußte.

  47. Harold Mundstock

    You're right - Willy- many country artists used the rocking and cadence of riding the rails to write songs as they traveled from place to place either as legal passengers or as jumpers it made it simple to set up background music! for recording!

  48. Kalamity Fame

    Truly lovely.

  49. dennis pendergast

    With the angels backing her. Spine tingling.

  50. willy hansen

    The way she sustains some notes reminds me the plangent sound of wheels running on the rails.

  51. George May

    The Jordanaires are such a great compliment to this song .

  52. Warren Denholm

    so good .
    nothing comes close.

  53. Tim Williams

    My very first memory, I must have been 3-4years old, was of my Mother rocking me to sleep, singing this song. Great song to start a life off with, over 40 years ago. Thanks Mom!

    Don Hawkins

    Mom would sing us to sleep whie singing this song~so peaceful !

  54. Helen Defilippo

    So beautiful!!

  55. Jennyfer Nascóir de Shaol

    Life is like a mountain railroad
    With an engineer that's brave
    We must make the run successful
    From the cradle to the grave

    Watch the curves, the fills, and tunnels
    Never falter, never fail
    Keep your hand upon the throttle
    And your eyes upon the rail

    Blessed savior, thou will guide us
    Till we reach that blissful shore
    Where the angels wait to join us
    In that great forevermore

    Blessed savior, thou will guide us
    Till we reach that blissful shore
    Where the angels wait to join us
    In that great forevermore

  56. WoodyLamb

    Patsy Cline is timeless.

  57. Pete Martin

    I'm going to take a guess and say that the eight people who disliked this song are either deaf or simply don't know good music when they hear it. Their loss.

    Joe Cheif

    Pete Martin or hit it by accident !

    Michael Cobb

    Make that 51, Pete. Merry Christmas to them anyway. And to you, sir.

  58. Gary VanDecar

    Recorded July 3 1959

  59. Stacey Pleasants

    One of my favourite songs ever

  60. James Loring

    Wow.. just heard this for the first time. What great lyrics!
    Life is like a mountain railway,
    With an engineer that’s brave;
    We must make the run successful,
    From the cradle to the grave;
    Watch the curves, the fills, the tunnels;
    Never falter, never fail;
    Keep your hands upon the throttle,
    And your eyes upon the rail.
    Blessed Savior, Thou wilt guide us,
    Till we reach that blissful shore,
    Where the angels wait to join us
    In Thy praise forevermore.

  61. Gary VanDecar

    Love this song, How prophetic it would be for Patsy.
