Lyrics – The Train
This train is bound for glory, this train.
This train is bound for glory, this train.
This train is bound for glory,
Don’t carry nothing but the righteous and the holy.
This train is bound for glory, this train.
This train don’t carry no gamblers, this train;
This train don’t carry no gamblers, this train;
This train don’t carry no gamblers,
Liars, thieves, nor big shot ramblers,
This train is bound for glory, this train.
This train don’t carry no liars, this train;
This train don’t carry no liars, this train;
This train don’t carry no liars,
She’s streamlined and a midnight flyer,
This train don’t carry no liars, this train.
This train don’t carry no smokers, this train;
This train don’t carry no smokers, this train
This train don’t carry no smokers,
Two bit liars, small time jokers,
This train don’t carry no smokers, this train.
This train don’t carry no con men, this train;
This train don’t carry no con men, this train;
This train don’t carry no con men,
No wheeler dealers, here and gone men,
This train don’t carry no con men, this train.
This train don’t carry no rustlers, this train;
This train don’t carry no rustlers, this train;
This train don’t carry no rustlers,
Sidestreet walkers, two bit hustlers,
This train is bound for glory, this train.
This train is bound for glory, this train.
This train is bound for glory, this train.
This train is bound for glory,
Carries nothing but the righteous and the holy.
This train is bound for glory, this train.

Learning Goal: I’m working on a music discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.Read page 18 Follow this format in your response:SECTION 1: ARGUMENTWhat is the author’s main purpose or goal? What is the central argument they are trying to make? Don’t forget to talk about the overall argument for the whole article in addition to the argument for the section that you are covering in your response.*You are required to read the entire article and watch the whole film your group is assigned to so that you get the big picture and the overall argument. However, the majority of your response will be focused on the specific sections you selected. In the “argument” section you SHOULD refer to the whole article/film’s argument.Do: Even if you are only talking about one or a few sections of the whole chapter or article (or film), you should still address the overall argument (for the whole chapter or article).
Analyze in your own words, from your own unique interpretation/perspective
Be creative and engaging for your viewers, listeners and readers (imagine you were explaining to peers outside of this class who have no knowledge of the material)
Think critically and strategically: what strategy is the author taking to convince you and why? Do you agree with what they are arguing? Are they convincing?
Don’t: Copy the article or my reading notes or video lectures
Use overly academic language from the article
Summarize the events in the film
SECTION 2: ORGANIZATIONHow do the author (and filmmaker) organize this argument into sections/parts? What are the different parts and what does each one cover? (be specific) Why does the author put the article/chapter (and film) into this particular organizational structure? You can also think of this as creating a “map” of the article or the chapter. What is the path that the author takes you down and why? What is the story (plot, characters, setting) that the author (filmmaker) is trying to convey? How does this story, plot, characters, setting, etc. support the author’s main argument or purpose? You should focus on one-two specific sub-sections of the article and of the film (not the whole article or whole film here). Do: Think of the big picture and about the small details simultaneously
Focus on a specific part of the article and of the film so you can go into more depth rather than trying to cover the entire article and film
Be descriptive of what exactly your sections contain but at the same time think about WHY these details were included; how does this serve the author’s argument/purpose? Are you convinced? Why or why not?
Don’t: List all the different section headings and provide only a sentence or two for each one
Vaguely describe the structure without going into any details about the content (for example, “the author begins with a story and then elaborates on that story” — What exactly is the story that the author tells at the beginning, why do they tell it, what purpose does it serve, and what is the result?)
Try to cover the entire article or film in this section
List the plot points
SECTION 3: EVIDENCEWhat types of evidence does the author use? What methods were employed? (Quantitative or qualitative?) What kinds of sources were used (some examples are: surveys, interviews, participant observation, focus groups, literature reviews of previous studies)? Why did the author use these sources? What are some of the key authors cited and why? For the film: What are the most important scenes in the film and why? Explain the significance of each of the authors/types of evidence that you mention. How does this evidence support the author’s overall argument? Do: Focus on one section of the reading, and one part of the film
Pick only a few pieces of evidence and go into detail/depth only about those
Decide what type of evidence was used
Think about why the author selected that evidence and how that supports their argument
Be critical in your analysis of whether or not you think that the evidence was strong enough to support their argument
Don’t: List all the evidence used without explaining why it was used by the author
Describe the evidence in overly vague terms such as “the evidence was qualitative.” Instead, you should say, “the evidence was qualitative, and included in-depth oral history interviews with x number of people over a period of y months. Interviewees included [describe characteristics of people interviewed…]”
Describe the scene without explaining why the author included it
Must be at least 500 wordsEXAMPLE OF HOW IT SHOULD LOOK ATTACHED In a separate document add this information with the responses.PEER REVIEW REQUIREMENTS You should format your assignment using the following headings (Argument, Organization, Evidence) to make it easier for peer reviewers to evaluate your work. Additionally, be sure to include notes within the document itself that explain: Which parts you are proud of & why
The parts where you struggled or were unsure & why
Which parts you want direct feedback about & why you want feedback about them
Questions you want to ask your peers as they review your work
