Last Train

Album: Southern Nights (1975)
  • Well, that last train done left town
    That last train done left town
    I heard the whistle moaning low
    But that last train done gone down

    My sweet baby's on that train
    My sweet baby's on that train
    I wonder if I will see her again
    Oh, that last train done gone down

    I heard the whistle moanin' low
    I heard the whistle moanin' low
    I beg and pleaded, please, don't go
    But that last train done gone down

    I'm sorry for what I've done
    I'm sorry for what I've done
    Too late good-bye, my baby cried
    Oh, that last train done left town

    Well, that last train done left town
    That last train done left town
    I heard that whistle moanin' low
    But that last train done gone down
