“Last Train to Clarksville” Lyrics

Take the last train to Clarksville
I’ll meet you at the station
You can be here by four-thirty
’Cause I’ve made your reservation
Don’t be slow
Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no

’Cause I’m leaving in the morning
And I must see you again
We’ll have one more night together (Train)
’Til the morning brings my train
And I must go (Hey!)
Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no
I don’t know if I’m ever coming home

Take the last train to Clarksville (Train)
I’ll meet you at the station
You can be here by four-thirty (Train)
’Cause I’ve made your reservation
Don’t be slow (Hey!)
Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no

Di-di di-di di-di di-di
Di-di di-di di-di di-di
Di-di di-di di-di di-di di

Di-di di-di di-di di-di
Di-di di-di di-di di-di
Di-di di-di di-di di-di di

Take the last train to Clarksville (Train)
I must hang up the phone
I can’t hear you in this (Train)
Noisy railroad station all alone
I’m feelin’ low (Hey!)
Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no
And I don’t know if I’m ever coming home

[break]

Take the last train to Clarksville (Train)
I’ll meet you at the station
You can be here by four-thirty (Train)
’Cause I’ve made your reservation
Don’t be slow (Hey!)
Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no
And I don’t know if I’m ever coming home

Take the last train to Clarksville (Train)
Take the last train to Clarksville (Train)
Take the last train to Clarksville (Train)
Take the last train to Clarksville (Train)
