“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
Uh huh huh huh

’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
Oh, no, no, no
Uh huh huh huh

And I don’t know if I’m ever coming

Take the last train to Clarksville (Train)
I must hang up the phone (Train)
I can’t hear you in this
Noisy railroad station all alone
I’m feelin’ low
Oh, no, no, no
Uh huh huh huh

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’ll meet you at the station (Train)
We’ll have time for coffee-flavored kisses
And a bit of conversation, oh (Hey!)
Oh, no, no, no
Uh huh huh huh

And I don’t know if I’m ever coming

[break]

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

And I don’t know if I’m ever coming

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)

Micky: Thank you very much. We’d further on continue right now working down memory lane, as you stroll in hand in hand, you look and you know that you may just. Be. The. One.
