Took The Last Train

by

David Gates



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This song was a follow-up to "The Goodbye Girl," the theme song to a popular Neil Simon movie with the same title. The song was fairly successful, but Gates never again scored major success as a solo artist afterwards. He later reunited with the group Bread, which he had been the front man for.

This was actually a solo hit for David Gates in the fall of 1978.

I was not aware Bread recorded again post-1978. Is this according to the Bread website?

In the name of song explanation, Al talks about scoring heroin for William Burroughs, and that's not even the most shocking story in this one.
