“Last Train to Clarksville” Lyrics

Micky: And you’re gonna hear uh, songs by a lot of other uh, great writers. This one, written by Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart. This is the one that started it all.

Take the last train to Clarksville
And I’ll meet you at the station
You can be here by four-thirty
I 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
’Til the morning brings my train
And I must go
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 (Oh)
And I’ll meet you at the station
We’ll have time for coffee-flavored kisses (Oh)
And a bit of conversation, oh
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 (Oh)
I must hang up the phone
I can’t hear you in this (Oh)
Noisy railroad station all alone
I’m feelin’ low
Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no

And I don’t know if I’m ever coming home

(Oh)
(Oh)

Take the last train to Clarksville (Oh)
And I’ll meet you at the station
You can be here by four-thirty (Oh)
I’ve made your reservation
Don’t be slow
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 (Oh)
Take the last train to Clarksville (Oh)
Take the last train to Clarksville (Oh)
The last train to Clarksville
the last train, last train, last train
Take the last train

Micky: Great tune, uh. Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart.
