Although "The Gospel Train" is usually cited as traditional, several sources credit a Baptist minister from New Hampshire, John Chamberlain, with writing it. Bartlett, historian for the New Hampshire Twelfth Regiment, reported Chamberlain as singing the song on April 26, , during Sunday services for the regiment. The source for the melody and lyrics is unknown but developed out of a tradition which resulted in a number of similar songs about a "Gospel Train". One of the earliest known is not from the United States, but from Scotland. In , Scotsman John Lyon published a song in Liverpool titled "Be in Time", the last verse of which mentions that the Gospel train is at hand. In , an editor for Knickerbocker magazine wrote about visiting a "Colored Camp-Meeting" in New York where a song called "The Warning" was sung which featured an almost identical last verse. In , the American born British by marriage jazz vocalist Adelaide Hall appeared in a British movie filmed in London called A World is Turning , intended to highlight the contribution of black men and women to British society at a time when they were struggling for visibility on our screens. Filming appears to have been halted due to the director's illness and only six reels of rushes remain, including scenes of Hall rehearsing songs such as "The Gospel Train"  and "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot".

And strangely enough, this song became a grown-up hit all over the world. It really amazed me Train whistle blowing, makes a sleepy noise, Underneath their blankets go all the girls and boys. Heading from the station, out along the bay, All bound for Morningtown, many miles away. Sarah's at the engine, Tony rings the bell, John swings the lantern to show that all is well.
